I don't know what happened today, struggled throughout. What was that about? I suppose I was just not on it today.
Bloody miserable conditions cold and drizzling and even though the course was fast and flat I couldn't do better than I did. My hamstrings were hurting especially the left one maybe that was one of the problems.
With 2K to go I thought I might be able to get under my PB but couldn't convince the pins to go any faster. I came home in 35:42,(1st 5K 17'28 2nd 18'13) four seconds shy of my PB and 9th in my age group. After finding out I'd missed my PB and just missed out on a trophy, they gave one each to the first eight in my age group, I let out a few quiet expletives like ones in the following clip.
Anyway, after that I felt fine so don't worry about me I know I can and how to do much better in the future. Thanks for all your last comments. And Rick breathe easy old fella ;) And Ewen I think I was 2nd "woman" in my age group today!
