Running blog: how was your weekend running?

A bank holiday weekend and, on Sunday at least, some glorious sunshine. Now surely that's a PB for the weather. Did you revel in it, or is the upturn in the temperature too much for you after a winter of slogging through sleet, snow and hail?

I did my usual track session on Saturday morning - this week 700m x 8 and 300 x 2 - then on Sunday I did the Ranelagh Harriers Richmond half marathon. I wasn't aiming for a PB as in truth I had totally forgotten I'd entered it until the email pinged into my inbox a couple of weeks ago. So this gave me a rare opportunity to really enjoy a race, take it at a comfortable pace and even admire the great scenery on the river.

And, as a bonus - although I finished a good two minutes outside my PB in 1hr 33min - I got to pick up my winnings from a 10-mile race I did a few weeks ago, where, for the first time, I won my age group. A M&S voucher and a crate of beer: just what every runner needs.
