finished in 50:36, so didn't break 50min as hoped...on the positive side of things compared to when I ran 50:01 i felt strong at the end, I only really kicked properly with about 500m left, in hindsight I probably should of backed myself and just gone for it from the 9k marker. There were also some very slow bits of the course, single file through uneven fields, where I would of lost time.
So although I didn't break 50min, it feels like I have progressed from when I ran 50:01 as I felt more controlled and stronger from 7k mark to the end.
My next race is on Sunday 15th July, so 4 weeks time, whats the best thing for this week (assuming I start a new 3 week cycle the week after to fit with the next race day)?
