Week before marathon, so treating as training run and pacing for Curly Kate.
Finsih time from Garmin is 4 mins slower than my PB but I am really chuffed with that time, given some of the awful 5ks I have had this year, I feel things are finally on the up! :0)
An excellent start made in cloudy conditions saw me comfortably on course for a new PB. Unfortunately, from 4K the clouds cleared, the sun beat down and not having prepared for the solar onslaught (I left my hat behind) my pace dropped. Sorry to all those who betted on me.
Have not decided to enter this race yet may coincide with hol's but if i do enter will give it 100% to beat57:37 as its a local 10Km and i desperatly want to beat my last sorry effort of 59:20.Entry now confirmed bring it on. Think i completed in under 56 minutes but will update when time is confirmed. Spent all night making race-pace band but forgot watch duhhh. Suprised and well happy with 55:02.
Went a little too quick in the first km tried to ease back a little on the 2nd, struggled around 4-5km, I think i was sufferring from the fast start, then managed to get into a steady rhythm for the last 5km, pushed well through the last 12kms. Enjoyed the race, although it was quite warm when the sun came out.
No excuses, fast course, slow me.
Great race...now want to aim for below 45 minutes.
Set off quicker than anticipated in the rush, and after 3k realsied wouldn't be able to maintain pace, slowed down a bit but still managed to get a SB
set pace for wife
My first 10km run after a few months of training. Pushed my se;f very hard at the end and suffered a leg injury for a month as a result. Was it worth it - YES!
