Running 29:16  7.8 km (3:45 / km)
weight:74kg shoes: Asics DS Racers
Thought I could try and stay with Krocko in the beginning but that turned out to be too fast. Had to slow down after that and try and recover a bit. Had Gustav Stenberg some metres behind from the beginning but thought to try and stay out ahead of him. Super slow up the two hills to try and avoid any lactate, which I knew I wouldn't be able to recover from. Was able to push along the flats pretty well after that though.
Gustav came up beside me by the 5k marker. Tried to stay ahead of him still, knowing that if he passed me easily I would be toast. Managed that pretty well up the last hill and to the final 500m where he finally coasted by. Happy to have pushed myself in that way, as I normally don't do that so well.
Felt decent, though not as good as last week. The goal in the back of my mind was to go under 29, but really the time doesn't matter at this point. Hopefully I feel a bit stronger on Sunday for the 10k though. Under 39 maybe?
Warm night (~8C?). Ran in shorts and t-shirt with gloves. Perfect.
