Unlike last weeks race, our handicap’s were revealed prior to the run. Slower runners starting first and the faster runners going last. The aim: to all finish at the same time.
This week I opted to drive to the start line over running. I wanted to save my legs for the run. Lazy? Some may say yes, I say wise however.
It was another all boy trifecta. The place getters being:
As for me, my handicap time was 11:40. Overall I came in 10th place with a race time of 36:21 (actual time 24:41). I knew by 2km that I was going to be at the back of the pack, but that’s ok. It happens. I’m still happy that I got a sub 25min time.
Normally I go out too fast at the start and burn up my energy, not this time.
I kept a good solid pace that I was happy with, and I ended up running a negative split.
The first 2.5km I ran in 9:38.03.
The 2nd 2.5km in 9:36.8.
The last km was also my fastest. I felt strong and powerful and came home hard.
The next club run will be held in Horsham on 17th May. It will be a flat course, so I expect some fast results.
