Distance: 9.95 km
Finally got a 10km race in. After 6 months of marathon training I managed to get a personal best for 10km distance by 1min 32seconds. Previous best ( in training ) was 43:46min.
I ran within myself, and did not feel like I could push that hard - also the hills knocked a little out of me. So I think given a flat course and a good day I could go fast. Considering I have been doing marathon training and not specifically speed for 10km races, its a great result.
The race was great too, nice location, excellent weather, and really well organised. The only problem was I had to walk across the start line because of all the bunnies at the front of the start.
If anyone ever reads this and is not a competitive runner, please consider the faster runners and make some room!!! If you are not going to run at the front don't start at the front.
