Arrived in Falkirk Travelodge switched on telly yo have the nice weather lady promise 18 degrees and and a cool sea breeze.
She lied it was hotter than that when we woke up at 0600.
We had a plan to run the first half in 1.45 - 1.50 giving us a bit of leeway for second half, all looked like it was going to plan when we went through 13 miles in around 1. 50.
At 15 miles the temperature rose and the average speed fell, at 19 miles we really started to struggle but hung on to finish in 4. 21 but at least we ran the whole way, and in temperatures that reached in excess of 20 degrees we were happy with our lot.
Helen smashed her last years time by 40 minuets so well done to her.
Roll on Brora 10k 20 miles less :)
