Pete Bland Half Marathon, Lancaster, Lancs
On Sunday I did a half marathon in Lancaster in the VRUK vest. I have been quiet since the London Marathon as I struggled with a knee injury (ITB syndrome) for about 3 months afterwards and only able to run 20miles a week. I was doing a lot of cycling, cross training, rehab exercises and stretching during this period. In the 6 or 7 weeks prior to Lancaster training went really well and I was running faster times than ever in sessions so I knew I was in good shape. Maybe the enforced rest after London did me some good!
Anyway I won the race on Sunday by over 4minutes in 68min47 which was a big PB for me. Full results here: http://ukresults.net/2008/blandhalf.html
