PBs rolling in – Winchester 5k / SDL

We hear from regular correspondent Sidney DeLara… who has a new 5k PB

Hello, Having started July with my first ever sub 19mins 5k, i gave myself the challange of attempting to do it again on a wet Thursday July 16th at the Winchester 5k.
 3 laps of Winchester town center, starting at the statue of king Alfred, running up the high street, around the Cathedral, along the riverside path and past the statue again. Being a town center, means having to cope with a number of twists and turns, avoid bollards and some cars,  people etc. A surprisingly high quality field saw the winner come home  sub 15mins . Pushing myself all the way i was again able to PB this time  18 mins 41 secs.
 Winchester 5k, Thursday July 16th 7:00pm,
  18mins 41secs, Overall 58th/276
 Male Vet 50 6th./27
Ed- given that SDL normally does better than 6th mv50, could it be that the PB was down to having more people to chase? Or was it just the right day?
