Friday May 6th. Serpentine RC Last Friday of the month Hyde Park 5k.
37th Overall, Sidney DeLara, 19 mins 57secs. MV55 3rd.
This event moved back one week due to Royal Wedding. Prince William a six minute mile runner
on a rare outing in the sport, with training who knows? I was the only Vegan participating on this occasion. Got through 1k in 3min:42 and 2k in about 7 mins 30secs but by 4k had slowed to 16 mins, so an attempt at trying to break 19 mins ended up being a battle to just get in below 20 mins.
