Temperature was ok and it didn't get too windy

Measured it as 13.2 and was ready for the Garmin doing that from early in the race.

Nice one gobi/jomo. How were your splits jomo - did you go off with the intention of clocking sub 80m. Just asking as I clocked a similar 10k time/wava score to your last 10k at a recent lumpy 10k and I've got a 1/2m next month (1st flattish one since 2014)

Well; another random week for me. Tuesday's track session went really well. Cruzing off the front of my little sub-group, and when I looked back at when I did the same session a few months ago I was comfortably faster.

Planned to do 24k on Friday afternoon before picking up the kids, but ran out of time so did 18k. That went OK.

Saturday night was Burns Night supper, where I was addressing the Haggis. Sunday morning came, along with a mild carpet mouth and hangover. Lunch at Yo Sushi with the family, then I ran home from town. I picked a challenging route ending with some hills. The final 10k was a death trudge. Average pace was 6:08/km, when I normally do a little outside of 5min/km for the same sort of run.

So, things are going badly and well at the same time...

Thanks, John. I ran with 1:20 as the aim, with the hope of pushing it in the last km to nick under that. Splits were:
1st 5k - 18:45
2nd 5k - 18:55 (this was the hilliest part)
3rd 5k - 18:47
4th 5k - 18:47
Last km was 3:35 (although I measured 21.2k, not 21.1k on my Garmin)

Top pacing there jomo. You've given me some food for thought!

Got something to say?
