So I decided to run home even though it meant running on the road rather than the grass. It was a lovely early evening and I enjoyed an easy run home.
Here are a few pictures from last night’s race ….
I thought that I wasn’t in quite the right shape to get under 40mins but it has given me something to aim for in the Paisley 10k which 10days away. I don’t do a lot of 10ks but that is the first time I’ve been over 40mins. So we’ll have to see whether last night was a one-off or the shape of things to come!!
Here are my splits for the race last night ….
Maybe I went off a little too quick. Looking at the splits my 4th k was slower and then the 6th and 8th & 9th k were off the pace. It is interesting that a group of 4 guys caught and left me during the 8th & 9th k. This was because I was slowing rather than they were getting faster.
I was pleased to see that I had something left to push the final k. The above picture shows I was working pretty hard at the end!
