Found a new way to kill myself

What do you do when you feel 129 mile cycle rides aren't testing enough? Well sign yourself up for a half marathon of course.
Starting to panic ever so slightly as I have only 13 days until I take part in my first half marathon, training was going really well back in February when I was up to 12.5 miles in under 1:50:00. Then I got struck down with a chest cold which stopped my exercising completely. Then in March I partially tore my right calf muscle. After some physio I only started running again last week & then I was limited to 10 minutes a day. I'm now easily doing 20 & hope to have tripled that figure by the end of this week.

Oh well it'll be alright on the day!

Oh and because I thought this might not be enough of a challenge. I've signed up (& paid up) for a full marathon in September.

People have always thought me mad. I do like to confirm it for them!

Re: Found a new way to kill myself

Well that went well I thought.
13.1 miles in 1:38 (I was aiming for 1:45)
502  overall
112 for my age group
460 male

Now for the next stage in training so I'm ready for the full marathon in September.

So what do the last 3 figures mean ?

Perhaps the idiot came in position 502, was 112th in his senior citizen sub group and was the 460th male to skip across the finish line.......
