1st 10K in 12 months, no 10K training, 71YO, 26C and 85% RH

1st 10K in 12 months, no 10K training, 71YO, 26C and 85% RH

1 hour 13 minutes!!! - had to resort to run/walking for the second 5K. But 1st and 2nd 5K's were almost exact same time. But 5 minutes slower than my best 10K this time last year which was part of a HM. Have lost quite a bit of fitness over the past 12 months. Breathing under control here - but sounding like an old steam train!! :(

Fantastic, very well done to you! You must have been super speedy at full fitness, that would be my time running full on every inch of the way! :) Great stuff.

Well done Bazza, you certainly seem back to fitness. There was something on the news here recently about the number of more mature runners in Australia who head out in such temperatures/humidity and do so well. Over here, we'd get praised for braving the rain and mud.

I don't do "running in the rain" :)
