Excellent race, finished 8th overall although the windy weather conditions put me 2 seconds outside a PB.
Held back on the first mile (5:43) and kept the second mile almost the same (5:45), would have held it for the third as well but this is where we hit the headwind (6:10). The fourth mile was easier as the wind was sideways (5:58) but back into the wind for the last mile (6:03 and 6:06). Much more consistent and felt so much more comfortable than my previous three 10ks - kept pushing forward all the way and picked off 4 runners in the second half of the race.
Slightly disappointed with my time - a minute outside my PB, but I have a fine excuse. My car broke down just north of Peterborough and I had to hang around in the cold and rain for a while awaiting rescue. I finally arrived at the race site on the back of a tow truck less than 15 minutes before the start, very stressed and flustered and not really in the right frame of mind! I was so wound up that I ran the first km in 3:59 (faster than 5K pace!), and had to ease off a lot in the second half as a consequence. My head just wasn't in the right place today, but still, the race served its purpose as something to keep me amused and running after FLM...my husband reckons I was in the top 10 ladies too
not sure if can get pb on this betters will just see how feels.
Quite tired at start but finished 10th and we also picked up team prize. quite pleased with time compared to other around me.
There was almost perfect conditions, and I won the race in a PB of 23 seconds...
