New PR!


It just felt right.You ever had one of those days.  The sun was out, the temp was warmer and I knew if I went and applied myself I could make a PR.
New PR:
5 Km : 19:49
10 km : 41:02

This brings me so much closer to realizing my goal of a sub 40 10k.  I felt pretty tired just before the 5 km mark, but I pressed through and let up a bit adding over a minute to my second split time.  But that being said, I still rocked my previous bests.

Well done! Plenty of speed in the first 5k - sub-40 looks on for sure.

Hey Ewen!
I petered out for sure by the 6 km mark and started fartlekking as much as I could. Sucking wind pretty hard.

Hey kenley!
Thanks, its an important one for me, I feel the need for speed, but often I am lacking to attempt it.

HEy Darrell
Its that lift you need, isnt it, when you go where you intend to in your goals. Have you set up any goals this year? Care to share? :)

Great job. Those days when everything just comes together are so cool. Top of the world. Lighter. Just.... right.

Congratulations. Hope you get to the sub 40.

Hey Bob!
I know, I guess you just get that feeling. Some days you arent as winded , you just know you have it in you.
