Last Race for the year.
Very Humid morning out at sunny Smithfield. Apparently it was 24 degrees and 75% humidity at 7.00 am. Not good conditions to run a PB. And the race started at 7.30.
Had MPHaz as our pacer to get under 40mins. Lost him at the start due to congested start area.
Got to the 2.5k in 9:45, 5k in 20:10, 7.5k in 31:15 and finished with a 40:39. Thats a 1:27s PB.
Ran the middle 5k in 21:30. It does have the hill both directions in it. Should have run it faster.
Not under 40mins but no excuses even the heat didn't effect my legs they were tired before the start.
Need more hill work before the next one.
Many cool runners there doing the 5,10 and 21.1k. First race next year for me is at SMC mid Jan.
