Nice miles, Ant, Menna Take care with the calf (Jools), and lurgy (Speedy) - annoying though these things are, at least you're not in the middle of a campaign . . . good progress from BOTF, although not sure I sympathise with the "unable to go slower" problem - the opposite is the case here . . . . SJ - mince pies are always a good idea, as are socks - well remembered, Poacher, and fine lapping 5 easy ones here after supporting daughter at XC league, to complete a low-key 27 mile week.
My 10K pb is faster pace per mile than my 5 mile pb, so it's reasonable to assume I went thru' 5 miles in the 10K faster than in the 5 mile race. However, I can't take that as a pb, as nowt official, and, as an old git, this was well before Garmins etc. Must say tho' that we shouldn't take Garmin splits as pbs anyway.
