The 5k race last night was two laps of an undulating course on wide paths in a country park. A nice course.
I'd charged my Garmin but when I tried to turn it on just before the start nothing happened. Slight panic as I like to know the finishing time if not the automatic lap splits. Luckily I had my phone with me so could look up what to do and the problem was solved. I was feeling good so was just a little disappointed with the time of 21:17.
Probably being a bit hard on myself as there were hills as well as a stiff breeze. I was second M65 behind Harry, as so often. Surprisingly for a small race there was a prize for second place, a £10 voucher.
We had a very nice week based in Gloucester, exploring the lovely countryside round there and visiting an old friend back from the USA (where he now lives) to see his family near Bristol.
I put a photo of Symonds Yat on Facebook which K2 saw. She got in touch and we had a nice chat with her and two cycling friends over coffee. Not long now before she sets off on her Land's End to John O'Groats bike ride. The logistics of it sounded horrendous but I'm sure she'll have a wonderful time.
I've got a 5K race tomorrow, the first in my new club's vest, and then a 10-mile race on Sunday.
I know Columba and Christine have big races coming up so all the best for those you two.
