10 x 400m with 200m recoveries done and I did try to run slowly through the recovery rather than walking. The result was much closer to my 5k pace, however I was still about 10 sec's quicker.
The results have been posted for Meon Valley Express and I think next year I may try the 5k. I was about 20th lady home out of all age groups and 37th overall from 77 finishers. I was shocked to see that with my current 5k time if that was replicated in the race I would have been 3rd overall! I know there's a free 5k each Saturday but would love another 5k medal as it's been a good few years since I've collected one.
