What an absolute disaster for me at the Alsager 5 Miler... jesus, I knew it was very windy BUT a serious lack of ability shone through hahaha... was expecting alot better I'll be honest... What a waste of time, sacked it off at 4 mile and jogged home... slowest 5 mile race I've done since 2005... Anyhow, 6:01, 5:57, 6:04, 6:10... glanced at my watch at around 3.8 mile as was blowing terribly at this point, realised how slow it was and sacked the last mile and a bit off in 6:28 going through 5 mile on the Garmin in 30:43... ended up going over line in 31:06 as course measured 5.06 mile . Not good at all Wanted 29:30... never going to happen hahahaha
Hope everyone else who raced had a good one... I wish I'd just gone out for another 18+ plod like last weekend...
