That sounds like a bit of a nightmare. Still, a win's a win (and pretty impressive in such a competitive race too) and not really that far off what you were aiming at even a bit frustrating when you were capable of a bit better.

Looks like your fastest 5k since 2009? If your data is complete. Not too shabby for an old man :-)

Jda - actually my fastest since the first injury that started the end of my distance running career.

The 09 16.34 was just before I tore fibre in my pelvis and 3 months before the first broken egg.

More good than bad in the result really just expected a little more and was surprised by the behaviour of people.
