it was the best one! New PB 39'49". Thanks to an insane last km in 3'33" pace.
I started at a good pace and created a "cushion" before facing the 4th km where there was an uphill. It took some energy to go through it but it was going according to my plan.
But after that I lost time in the 6th and 7th with the u-turns, tried to get back on track in the 8th, and got caught in heavy traffic of 5km slow runners at the 9th.
So, when I crossed the 9km sign, I was 15 seconds behind and thought I just had to go fast as I could for only one km. So I ran it like I never did it before and crossed the finish line below 40 minutes. Amazing!
Here the splits:
May 24th - 10k race
5k splits: 19'57"/19'52"
Once again, it's great to see how the 10k program works so well for me and other runners.
