Apologies to Mr Zimmerman for pinching his song title. Inspired by Easy Tiger, Kanser and EJ running the 5k at ES Marks field this afternoon I decided to run a time trial in Centennial Park.
The Colin will be pleased.
Did a 2k warmup before I started. Legs were not feeling the best at the start and I had to contend with the sea breeze still blowing strong as well.
It felt good to run fast again. Total was 3.7ks in 14:11. Average pace of 3:50 per klm. Not sure where it came from, and I have no idea if it can be replicated next week at the 10k. Did a 2k cooldown after finishing.
P.S. Jeremey Roff ran the 5k and pulled out at 3k with an 8:08. He was paced for 2k by Jeff Hunt I think. Looks like he is in form for the 3000m state in a couple of weeks.
