With a southerly blowing and a humid morning I thought this might be an ugly day.
Started off with two lots of 3:50 ks and went rapidly down hill after that.
Was at the 3k mark in 11:43 and then the 5k came up at 19:58 so I new it would be a crap run.
The foot pain came back at about the 5k mark to remind me that it hurts. Got a tip from Miss Skarmel about tying laces so might try that.
Finished in a time of 40:56. Very disappointed with that. The PB is 39:54 on a hilly course.
There were a heap of runners at todays race. I'm guessing the 300 mark again. Action will be pleased.
Had the shock of my life about the 6k mark when Mister G powered past me and kept on going.
Definitely a PB not sure how big. Time was 40:20 I think. Couldn't get the grin off the face after the race. And he did a 60k training run last Sunday.
I am definitely not feeling fast at the moment. Even though my 1k reps get me under 4min/ks.
Only have two weeks to turn it around for SMH Half.
I was hoping to use todays faster time to push for a C2S preferred start. No chance.
Striders 30k STaR tomorrow!
