2nd 10km race - done

2nd 10km race - done

2nd go at a 10km race this morning. This time in Hyde Park. Still pretty warm even with a 9.30am start. Lovely route through the patk - lovely and flat too! Went off a bit too quick at the start and felt a bit wobbly at about 7km so did a bit of walking. Almost went the wrong way at one point too! Finished in 1 hour 22 - 3 minutes faster than my first 10k a couple of weeks ago. Feel OK but in need of a treat so tea & crumpets in Harrods for me!
