Cheers Chickadee. Yes a 10min PB and the other goal was to be able to give the last 10k a proper go.
1mi warmup (easy + strides) and stretch over the 15mins prior to the starting line call, then:
1mi easy, rising into goal pace then even splits. HM/FM split was something like 1:41 v 1:42
HR about 10bpm higher than in training. Race day nerves plus the windy conditions maybe. Drift was not bad at all - low 160s for 22mi & climbing steadily towards 180 but I did manage to kick on for the mile or so.
Pace and form held together better than last time.
