So close, yet so far! - I knocked a minute and a half off my 5K time at parkrun this morning. I seemed to have leveled out around 32 minutes - and I was thinking that I had reached my limit -- but it was much cooler this morning , only 20C with lower humidity. So I managed 30:34. This put me 85th out of 213 runners and 38th out of 213 on an age weighted basis. Not bad really for an old F*** like me who 15 months ago couldn't run to the other side of the road.
I am intending to do a few months of slow HR training now - and will be away from any "racing" opportunity until mid- June. Although - I have found a 5K race at the Palm Springs airport in mid-May which will be close to where I am at that time. Maybe!!!!
