Came 7th in a pretty strong field with Epi and B’man finishing 8th and 9th respectively, so it was good for all of us to get a top ten finish, well done guys. The Baugh boys both ran really well finishing 1st and 4th respectively.
Race was underway and Epi and B’man skipped to a little lead and then I caught up with Simon at approx 500m and then we passed Epi at approx a km. Simon and I then continued to run together until approx 2.5km which was under the Mt Henry Bridge when I went a little in front. From then on I was running on my own with the guy in front of me a fair way in front. Thought there would be a nice tailwind behind us after we’d gone over Canning highway but that was not to be and so the last 1.5km or so was a bit of a slog as there was a bit of a crosswind but still managed 3:40’s.
What I’m really happy with is that the toe was fine and I managed to race with no bandages or patt strap which is the first time in a number of years. The DS Trainers were great to run in again.
I’m going to claim a 5k pb based on garmin today of 17:46 :).
Week in Summary 80k@4:17, last week 66.4k@4:36
