10k race yesterday
Knew going into this I was in no shape at all especially having been at the Electric picnic the weekend before but really wanted to do this race as my last one was way back in May and ever since and mixture of life and not enjoying running made for a baron spell on the racing front.
So I was using yesterday as a final attempt to see would I give it up or continue on running
Started off and felt good. First 2 miles were done at a nice pace 8.10 & 7.50. 3rd mile was a bit slower but not to bad 8.19 and I still passing people out and I was feeling really good 4th mile was much the same 8.15 and I was thinking maybe a new p.b was on here if I could just hold it together but that is where the wheels came off 5th mile 8.44 started to breathe a lot heavier and had to take the pace right done. 6th mile was much the same 8.45.
Finished in 50.49
Not disappointed by it at all said before the race I would be happy with a sub 50. Having done very little training in fact none and to much drinking of late.
I think I have discovered the running bug again and looking forward to my next race. I will stick to 10k's for a while nice and quick.
