My first “Certified Road” 5k of the year, this being a series of 5 evening races over the summer. Flat course with a number of twists and turns, seeming to spend a lot of time running through empty car parks. Going into this one without having trained much, so restricted objective to sub 20 minutes. Got through first 1k in under 4minutes, hanging on to go through 3k in 12:02 , big effort over final kilometre to cross line in 19mins 46secs.
Do not forget track and field outdoor season has started , at open events you can enter the discipline of your choice for a small charge, be it 100 metre sprint, high jump or javelin etc.
