Nike RunLondon 2006

Originally uploaded by se71.

Another year, another Nike RunLondon 10K race. Last year, in their "I will run a year" campaign with red T-shirts, I did pretty well and blogged about it here.

This year it was the North vs South, and I choose North which entitled me to a green T-shirt, rather than the South's orange one.

Before you nod off, my time was 44.01, which is over a minute faster than last year. I'm pretty pleased - still heading towards my target of 40. I know, it's an ambitious target.

I was running with my new iPod Nano, and Nike Plus trainers containing a foot pod to tell me how I was doing. Unfortunately, as it was my first time using all these things, I messed up and choose the wrong setting. Instead of being told my time after every kilometer which is what I expected, it told me when it thought I had completed a kilometer. This was particularly useless, as there were signs telling me this anyway, and also, it got it wrong. By the end of the race, my Nano estimated that I had run only 9.6km. (I guess the other explanation is that Nike got it wrong, and hence my fast time. Let's not go there :)

More later on my split times, and for the next few months you can see me crossing the finish line at the RunLondon site.

PS - is it a good thing if the room spins when you stand up, and then your legs hurt so much you can harldy walk?
