OK so who was as disappointed as me about the cancelled race this weekend?
I was upset but the weather was the major factor and I think the organisers got it all right. Stewards and spectators don't want to stand in freezing conditions for hours and the icy roads make running dangerous - even for pro-runners. So good decision in the end. But this wasn't gonna stop me from running it - I did it today (Monday) in the afternoon when most of the ice and snow had melted away.
Being self-employed has its advantages and Mondays are generally quiet, unless I have parties to finalise work for from the weekend - but double bonus cos over the weekend I ran my daughter's party, so I was able to put finishing the video on hold for a day and get this route run! I'm really pleased to get this done today and chuffed I did it in 2.02 hrs which is 13 minutes faster than the last one in Nottingham (not an official time obviously). Maybe if they reschedule then I will get a second chance. Pace analysis below.
