I finally did it....sub 20 minute 5k, on my own, no race competitors to provide that extra competiveness, just 12 weeks of lockdown. This has been my aim for 6 years of running, did it once 2 years ago in a race but my Garmin only recored 3.08 miles so that pb never showed on my stats. Over the moon with my 19:51. I always lose motivation after a PB as if my work is done but also thinking can I push to a 19 minute 5k.

Well done JT. As a round number objective it's a nice one to dip under - crack on with the sub 19 goal now!!

Didn't do another 5k, as the club started a mile time trial handicap league instead. 20.14 yielded 6.05, so first week 6.04 (narrowly beating it) and second week I did 5.54 - which predicts a 19.37 5k.... so maybe banging on the sub 20 door a little more convincingly on my next attempt...

Got something to say?
