I ran 2 miles in just over 18 mins yesterday.


I have no idea whether this is good or not. but i'm pretty happy.

also didn't get stabbed on the streets of Swindon, so another plus...

I think you should have started a "jogging " thread Smiley

I completed the Reading half in 1.30.37, happy with that in prep for London. Quads hurting a bit today though. 2 more "big" runs then taper down before the big one on 22 April.

Any idea why the Reading half gets 3/4 times the amount of runners that our one does?

The only thing I can think of is that it's in the build up to London so many use it as preparation as its so close. It's also a nice course to run without many hills and in my eyes seems far better organised then the Swindon half marathon.

Cheers Sam. Knees went after 8 miles and the heat did me as the forecast this week predicted rain. Really pleased with the time though considering.

I've been asked by a friend to do the Oxford half marathon in October.

Guess where the start/finish line is.

Yes bang on.

I just don't think I could bring myself to starting a race at the Kassam Stadium.

I'd feel dirty.

As long as you run it wearing a Swindon Town shirt that should help...
