Trimpell 20 Race Report
Tuesday, 6 March 2012 12:46:13 Europe/London
Sunday 4th March I (Paul Wathan) took part in the Trimpell 20 mile road race to see where I was at with my fitness. I had not started the year on a good foot, the aim was to get round in 2:15:30 and take it as a good bench mark. Race morning come and it was good conditions light rain with low winds, most runners would agree perfect! So I set off at 6 min milling pace and eased my way into the race. 14 mile went by and I hit the wall, started to panic and lost 30-40seconds per mile for the next 4 mile a runners nightmere to be honest but 18 mile come and I managed to get back in control of my breathing and ran off the stitch coming home a lot stronger finishing in 2:04:13. This hopefully sets me up for a good chance of going sub 2:45 in the London Marathon in April (fingers crossed) I was also informed by the North Wales Road Running Manager that 2:04:13 was the 8th quickest time to be posted by a runner from the region of North Wales of all time in their record books. Plans going forward to keep injury free and have a better 2012 than 2011.
