Photo shows me 500m from finishing, looking for a sub 40min, see hand,
close but not this time, but I did managed 40mins 10sec to get my 10K time down 21 seconds from my best time previously. Although I'm a little miffed I didn't go sub 40min I am rather happy with this as I've been fighting off a head cold for the last few days and I was feeling under the weather going into this.

I didn't mention that in my previous blog as I didn't want to come across as giving excuses just in case I didn't run well. Anyway still feeling a little fluey, but happy as I'm chipping away at my times and I was also able to spend the day with my family. Excellent seafood BBQ.


  1. Congrats Scott!!! Wow, so close to sub 40 mins.

    Just think, all you have to do is run 1 second faster per km, except for the last km where you'd better kick it in the guts and do 2 seconds faster :-)

    Great pic by the way, you look pretty comfy considering it was 500m to go.

  2. 21 second PB is pretty awesome - you might of gone sub 40 if you weren't showboating for the camera ;-)

  3. Hi 2p

    I laughed when I read your "showboating" remark cause I thought when I posted that photo someone would say something as it does look like I could break out chrous of "Hello Dolly."

  4. Sounds like a great time to me. I agree that you look pretty fresh for running a time like that.

  5. Congratulations on the 40:10 Scott. How did you know you were going to miss by 'that much' before you'd finished? ;)

    Persistence in training is paying off. I'd say the 11:06 3k helped your 10k.
