This morning I went back to the Cornwall Park run 5km. It was pouring down with rain when I woke up and was trying to decide whether to go or not and my son rang and said he was going and would run/walk with Mae, so that was it.
I was late getting there, so not much warm-up. The rain stopped, but everywhere was wet and muddy. Didn't really feel like I got going, I just couldn't run any faster. I will have to do some speedwork to get the legs ticking over.
There are lots of sharp turns, so after about 200m, there is a sharp right turn and because of the muddy conditions one guy near me had a big slide. I settled in and pretty much ran by myself until about the 4km mark where I was catching a girl, who called out to her mother saying she wanted to stop. Instead of the mother saying that she was running well, the stupid women just yelled at her to run faster! Poor girl, and few metres later she pulled out. Sad, as she'd already done most of the hard work.
Anyway - 1km 4.52, 2km. 4.54, 3km 5.04 (long hill), 4km 4.47, 5km 5.06
Think all I can say is that it is a good way to do an effort run.
Sorry Aws - I couldn't change the typing mistakes in my other post.
NZC - Why apologise to me? I'm not the keyboard police.
