First ever 10 mile race - so got a PB!
Slowed 6-10k after fast start, thought stretch target of 1:15.00 had gone.
Sneaked just inside with a quite pacey finish ..... subject to confirmation of official time.
1k 4.17, 2k 8.29, 3k 12.59, 4k 17.30, 5k 22.03 (3 secs ahead of GNR).
6k 26.50, 7k 31.32, 8k 36.14, 9k 41.02, 10k 45.57 (slowed in the middle 5k - done in 23.54).
10.05k 46.11, 11.05k 50.59, 11.1k 51.13, 12.1k 56.07, 13.1k 1:01.00, 14.1k 1:05.48, 15.1k 1:10.27 (10k to 15.1k in 24.30 - ok in the wind).
16.1k (10 miles) in 1hr14.45 - last 1km in 4.18 (good pace).
Started in drizzle - ended in sunshine - wind against for 80% of the way - but in the last 2 miles a tail wind gave us a much needed boost!! My best ever last 500m - quite quick and passed a few - for once!
Placed 5th / 189 finishers. Good race along the promenade but shame about the strong headwind for much of the course.
flat all the way
