Elusive Sub 16
My battles with the clock continued last night as I ran the 5k in 16:00.36! Slightly frustrating as I went through the bell only needing a 75 to seal the deal but couldn't quite manage it. However, this was a solo effort right from the start and it was very hot so I'll take it. I ran through the first 1600 in 5:05 which was right about where I wanted to be and I was feeling pretty smooth, but the wheels started coming off around lap 7 and my splits starting moving towards 77-78. Mile 2 was 5:09, mile 3 5:08. I did take consolation from the fact that I was the only person in the race that didn't get lapped by Jordan who ran a solo 14:59!!
