lildude (nee BFC) Given my recent good performances over 5km, I thought I'd be up for a fast time today, despite this being a bit of a challenging course. I set sub-38 in my mind and I went for it.

After a bit of a quick start which felt far too easy, I settled into a comfortable pace and ticked over the km aiming to keep my average time per km under 3:48. This worked a treat except for the little 'sting in the tail' which is the incline and hill in the last 2km of this race.

On entering the field for the finish, I looked up to see the time on the clock was approaching 37:45 so I dug in and sprinted to the finish, pipping a chap on the line, coming in under 38mins.

This knocked a whopping 50 seconds of my previous 10k PB (38:45) and a huge 1:56 off my previous best for this race (39:51).

Given this is deemed a slightly tough race, I wonder what my time would have been over a nice flat 10k known for fast times. FERC 34:08 37:55 37:55 70.70
Mrs. Mole Blimey, I didn't really want to race this one but I'm glad I did, a PB which I certainly wasn't expecting. Sandhurst Joggers, Spa Striders RC 50:11 50:11 54:09 50:11 72.61
