Helensburgh half marathon

1 hour 25min 54sec.
I went over for this race on my own. It was the 3rd time I've done this well organised sl undulating race but not since 2006.
I have spent the last week feeling v tired after the long run a week ago so wasnt sure what to expect.
I set off at 6.30 pace and with the exception of a couple of miles more or less maintained that. I finished well overtaking 2-3 runners in the last couple of miles which is a good sign. Although this is the slowest I have run this race I was v pleased as my time was the upper part of my aspirations for the day.
4 days to recover for the Comrie fortnight hill race!


  1. well done Phil - that's an excellent performance and much more where you would expect to be. Ian

  2. An absolutely brilliant time Phil- well done. If I was clocking times like that in my twenties-I would be over the moon!!
