PJL Will try to keep up with Dave, but can't see myself going sub-5 just yet.

Hot hot hot!  Expecting more of a race from DaveA and Stuart Little, but went out at my own pace, gaining a good early lead.  Worried I might have gone out too fast, but first lap time was about right for PB (1:16) so decided to try and maintain that pace.  Second lap went well, slowed a bit on lap 3 but the time called out to me on the bell suggested I could still get a PB so with the girls cheering me on I dug deep and went for it.  Sprinted to the line to find I'd run within 0.5sec of my PB - as last time, it was 5:15:xx rounded up to 5:16.  Very pleased with that considering a distinct lack of training recently.  With some specific training I should be able to do better, but sub-5 still seems a long way off.

SiLeeds Well I predicted a 6.20 and managed a 6.03 and I went out way too slow for a change so brilliant news as there is a 5.40 there in about a month and its good to see where you are at after a month of good training :)
