connelld Set off in race far too quickly. I was aiming for 88-90 per lap but did first in 78. Slowed down to 86 for a few laps before dropping to 89. However got a second wind and managed a new PB. Well chuffed. Kilmarnock Harriers & AC, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 17:30 18:00 18:00 73.68
daviec Attended the meet as my son was competing, but took my gear just in case and by the time we got there I decided to enter the 5000m and see how it went. One week after the marathon, and my first time racing on a track so quite pleased with my time. Went off far too fast and after a few laps could feel the fatigue still in my legs from last week. Gives me something to beat next time out. Carnegie Harriers 18:46 18:46 18:46 69.55
hannkies Unhappy with this if I'm honest, again made the mistake of veering from my lap target ( 81 seconds ie a 16.52 5k ) at the start ( 74 seconds ) and again paid for it with a couple of laps around 8-11 nearing 90. Still, it's only my second ever track race and I'm convinced that by doing these on a semi regular basis, it MUST help in the long term. Finished 4th, getting pipped by a Clubmate for 3rd in the home straight - Lucky White Heather. Kilmarnock Harriers & AC, Scottish Veteran Harriers Club 17:25 17:42 17:42 76.91
purplehippo 1st EVER track race, & also 1st race I've entered knowing I'd be last!  However was also 1st Vet, so got a gold medal!!!! Kilmarnock Harriers & AC 21:20 21:20 21:20 71.11
