thommck This was a warm one! I never sweated so much after a race. Thought I did quite well considering, 2 minutes away from a PB though. I need to try and speed up a bit earlier. Unaffiliated 47:00 48:05 48:00 50:18 53.11
Tim of Fife MILTON KEYNES 10KMS AT OPEN UNIVERSITY  -   49.41  MINS  (STOPWATCH) /  49.55 MINS (OFFICIAL)  -   253RD OF 385 FINISHERS  

This was a total disaster!   I'd been tired and dehydrated through the day,  with a thumping headache.    So,  racing in sweltering temperatures in the evening was plain stupid.   But then,  I've never been well known for my common sense.  

I knew long before half-distance that I was going to struggle if I didn't do something.   So,  from the fourth kilometre,  went into 'survival' mode and took a thirty second walk at each km marker.   It got me round.  No more, no less. 

I'm very, very farfrom impressed with myself!

(km splits - 4.52 / 4.47 / 4.55 / 5.01 / 5.06  5.06 / 5.09 / 5.00 / 5.01 / 4.44) Unaffiliated 45:06 46:30 49:41 59.46
