How to run like an idiot and ignore everything you’ve learned: The Oulton Park Half Marathon 2018

As the end of February approached, I reflected on the first few weeks of 2018 against the intimidating prospect of tackling London – my first marathon since 2015. I’d exorcised the demons of Dewsbury, posting my first ever official sub-39 minute 10k; I’d taken 3 minutes off my Ferriby 10mile time, and according to Strava, I’d PB’d over 2 miles and 5km in training, and 10km, 15km, and 10 miles in races. Training had been going pretty well – I’d been able to up my mileage without any signs of injury, and to top it off, I’d managed to stick with the Suicide Squad for an entire two miles one night. So, it was with some confidence, and a spring in my stride, that I approached my next test in my road to marathon adequacy.
