Sub 40min 10klm. Yeehah.
Ran very even splits throughout the race. Didn't try to run faster or chase anyone. Just ran the way I had planned it. I guess that is very simple but doesn't take into account hills.
Splits: 4:00, 3:54, 4:00, 4:00, 4:21. The 5k split was up the hill at Scribblys and going up to Ryde Rd. Gave me 20:15 at the 5k mark
Next lot of splits: 4:00, 4:00, 4:00, 4:05(hill), and 3:34 for my last 1k.
Ended with 39:54. First time under 40mins for 10k and a 47 second PB on a hilly course.
Last run on this course was July last year in 42:30. Obviously a lot fitter since then.
The hardest klm on the course was the first one. Trying to stop my adrenaline from pushing me too fast at the start was very hard. Obviously gave me enough energy to keep the splits all even.
Now to chase my goal for the year of 38:30, and the Canberra Marathon start.
