Running race 16:29  5.0 km (3:18 / km)
Colours - 5km
Showed up, and got going.
Chat at the start about various times, and I think a few of us agreed under 17 would be good, but maybe I misunderstood.
Sure, we got going and turned out me & Jonno from trinity were pretty similar. Mixed and matched the lead a good bit. At times I felt comfortable, but he made some moves which put a bit of pressure on too.
We kept it consistent though.
Heard one or two shouts of "you have him for speed, just hang in Jonno", which worried me a little - maybe he did have me for speed.
So, with about 800-900m to go, I made a pretty hard move. Tried to run it from distance and ramped it up a little every 200m or so.
Glad not to hear him on the home straight.
Opened up and took the W.
Turns out Jonno dropped out with 600 to go, but sure I wasn't to know.
Glad I finished hard enough cos jaysus I snuck under the 16:30.
16:29.7 - new PB.
Laps: 37, 78, 80, 78, 80, 81, 80, 80, 81, 81, 80, 76, 73
kms: 3.15, 3.23, 3.19, 3.25, 3.07
Some room for improvement based on the weekend, and other factors, but ain't no complaining. Good benchmark.
