Gainsborough 10k 2013

With the disappointment of January’s cancelled Brass Monkey Half Marathon behind me, it was time to get the racing flats out for this flat fast course and another chance of securing a personal best over the 10k.

I had put in a good block of training together on the track and was mentally and physically ready. The challenge was to go sub 35 minutes.

As usual most runners tend to set off hard in the hope that they can hang on towards to end. Having trained even more closely with my heart rate I purposely held myself back over the first 2 miles and settled into my HR zone so I could hopefully finish strong towards the end.
Over the final 2 miles we were into a slight headwind. Luckily I was able to push on and pass others maintaining my pace and achieve my goal finishing in 34:57.
