Half-Marathon ran 1:19:22. Personal Best and improvement by 1 min 30.
I don’t hide that I wished I was faster (as many other runners ) but I am glad about the result. I finished 6th overall ranking and 4th in my category ( medal).
The race was much harder than I thought. I kept thinking about the big bridge but in fact the difficulty comes from the repetition of bridges. Plus, I believe it was pretty hot and my heart was quite high from the start.
Regarding my race management, I believe it was acceptable. Not too fast for the first 5 km (a bit too slow in fact but it was hard to leave the Saigon’s team), then I was fine until kilometer 10. But then it was quite difficult to run and I found again that HM is way too long for me.
Super experience in Quy Nhon with friends and meeting very nice runners .
Coming back now to train on short distance . with hopefully some races end of the year .
