Portsmouth Promenade 5k:
A new course from previous years run around the former IBM grounds, allowing for a more sheltered run, nice and quite and traffic free without the long seafront stretch of the former route but more twists and turns and a awkwardly narrow start. Managed to run a decent pace from start to finish, faltering a bit at various stages but holding on for a new seasons best of

Brooks Last Friday of the Month Serpentine RC 5k Hyde Park.
Full of optimism after Wednesdays 5k , left home straight into a long traffic jam due to road works and an accident. So had to get a later train to London, mad rush to Hyde Park, change and onto start line. Went through 4k well under 16minutes but the unexpected wind element on Rotten Row, cancelled out the time usually gained on down inclination at this point, a mad sprint to the line got me in just under 20 minutes for the third time here out of three this year.
