Birmingham Rowheath 5K
2 hours before this race, V'rap said - we're running this 5K later
"WE"..?
Oh - OK
So - no speedwork of any kind - no preparation - just get out there and have a blast!
And it was brilliant :-)
YES I went off too fast - YES I got to the point of saying "Turn over faster you Bu@@ers" to my legs, and they refused - NO I didn't quite catch the bloke in the black shirt who was 50m ahead of me at 700m to go - but did get to within 5m of him - YES it hurt - Yes I recovered really quickly and then had a 3K jogged warm down at < 70%WHR - YES, I had a fabulous time
YES - it was a PB

eL Bee!
See if I can beat my last Rowheath 5k time on 26:35 - might be tough as I've got Staffs Knot the night before!

My first-ever 5k race! *UPDATE* That was hard, though the person who said before the race that 5k was harder than 100k was fibbing. Quite a challenging course with several long updulates. I strung together two sub-7-minute miles for the first time ever, then quietly died. The time is my Garmin time; my actual time may be closer to 21:50, with which I'd still be delighted :o) :o) :o)
