So that brings my magic running to a close. I had to have a few days off running from my last 10k on tuesday as my calves were a bit achey, so didn't manage to get out until tonight.
I found my pace surprisingly fast, with first k at 5:54 then 5:47 then 5:50 so was on for sub 30min 5k but ran out of puff approaching 4k so walked for 10secs or so but still managed a 6min split. But then I struggle to run again after having walked so called it a day at 4.7k. Definitely a sub 30min possibility ahead though, so maybe my garmins 27min 5k race prediction isn't complete tosh.
That's me for a few days, then i'm gonna start trying to stretch out to 12k+ with some slow pace running.
