Ready for the Kilmacolm half

Tomorrow morning I’m doing the Kilmacolm half marathon. It looks to be a small event, and out and back along a cycle track, and with only 159 entrants, and just 54 are women. (Possibly because the Great Scottish Run is in 2 weeks time and there was a 10 miler event today).

I’ve got these bad boys ready for tomorrow, along with my water pack that I’ll wear. I’ve not done a half marathon event yet this year, so I’ll see what happens.

I’ve run out there before and it’s mostly cycle track and quite flat I think. Here’s the elevation from Garmin – note the wee downhill at the end. 🙂

I’ll probably run with my heart rate up to about 160 until half way, then up to 165 until 10-11 miles, then let it do whatever to finish.

I haven’t been doing much fast running, but I’ll just run to my heart rate and see what happens. Maybe the rain will help me run faster. 😉

It’s meant to be pi$$ing down though. :-/ guess I’ll not need my sunglasses then, it I’ll need my cap.

Audrey is coming to mine early, then I’ll drive to Kilmalcolm, register, and get ready for the start at 10am.

I’ve got my kit already and I’ll take a change of clothes to get changed and warm at the end hopefully. Purple shorts and yellow on top (red/orange under layer/vest) – my race gear. 🙂 Better get an early night!
