Debut at a measured 5k race. Wasn't hopeful of nailing it in under 20 minutes, and so it turned out. A very hot morning indeed. A little disappointed with my time, but I was 74th out of 388 and I was coming off the back of a cold. So, I have more work to do get those 48 seconds off. Great to see Blister again and meet SarahL. Very impressed by my first experience of BPTT and hope to have opportunities to take part in more.
Not quite as fast as I'd hoped, but felt reasonably easy, plus I did do a warmup lap before hand, and am supposed to be in the buildup to a half marathon next weekend.
Crap run, plan was to run steady for the first 2 miles then hard for the last, so something like 5:50, 5:50, 5:20 but it didn't work! First mile was about right (and the fastest) and felt really easy, then 2nd mile was too slow but didn't feel hard and tried to push really hard in the last mile and only just scraped a sub 6...pafetic! Not sure why it was so bad, it was quite warm and legs were still tired from the past week but otherwise can't see a reason, I must have just lost my speed endurance. Still finished 20th out of 388 which is pretty high considering how slow the time was. Got to meet and speak to Sonia O'Sullivan at the end too, she finish about 20 seconds before me and I just *had* to talk to her!
