Funny thing about the time, I went into it very gently and took my time knowing it was such a jump, but even then it was 1:45 which was not too bad at all! My aim is for the half marathon in that time in just under 3 weeks.
Legs pretty sore today, but you'll find that once you get to a certain distance you can pretty much just keep going with good shoes.
