Did the SMC 10k at Smithfield today.
Apparently it was 24 degrees and 90% humidity at the start.
Very unpleasant conditions to race in.
Thought I was doing a speed session and got to the 1k in 3:35.
Reached the 2.5k mark in 9:30. 15seconds faster than last month.
Got to the 5k turnaround at 20:10. Still looking good for sub 40.
Made the 7.5k in 30:30. That 5k was done in 21mins 30sec quicker than last month at SMC.
Very ugly last 2.5k no-one to chase 3rd place was about 400m ahead at this stage.
Finished in 40:50 only 9secs outside my PB.
Very hard to run today. But I did finish 4th so happy with that.
Give me cool conditions I can do the sub 40.
