Started my week with the first class at the new #f45 in London! They are a worldwide gym franchise so for those of you that haven't been i would recommend checking if there is one in your country/area. I can't recommend the classes enough!! 💪🏻 📸: @thejensjourney
Definitely tore the chest a bit today! Pretty happy with the workout hopefully feeling a bit sore tomorrow!
Other then that had a good day! Good time at college annndd got a bit of positive news this afternoon which I've been needing!
Did everyone else to national chest day?? If not what did you train?
Hope you put you're all in, got to reach those goals 💪🏼
Now I've recovered a bit more, time for my full race report. It's very easy for me to sit here and talk very positively about this race as I had the best outcome I could have expected but I'll do my best to be objective!
The organisation was great, it took a while to get into the park on arrival (a 30min journey became 1hr 20min) but that couldn't be helped with the amount of people accessing the Park at the same time.
There were marshals and signs at all critical points in the race. Impossible to go the wrong way and the marshals were so supportive throughout.
While it was meant to be fully closed roads, you can't help the few people who need to leave their houses on a Sunday morning.
The course - I've seen a lot about this and my advice to people is to always check the course route and profile before you sign up. It shouldn't have been advertised as flat, I would have described the course as mainly flat with undulating parts. But it was a PB potential course, and nowhere near as hilly as some of the other halfs in the area.
The only thing that I personally think that the event could have improved on, would be to have the start organised by time pens. But the race is chip timed so it didn't matter too much.
All in all, it was a fantastic event that did so well for its first time running and I would definitely consider doing it again.
