Struggled this week. Pace way down on my two outdoor threshold runs. Wasn’t expecting much for the 5km. Myself and Tadgh took it out fairly hard and we were stride for stride the first 3km. Lots of hills and twists and when the course flattened out around the lake and I was fearing it would turn into a sprint finish. But I managed to open up a bit of a gap without lifting the pace. Then it was all about staying focused up to the finish. I crossed the line in 15:57 for the win which equalled the course record. Pleasantly surprised by the time as it felt more like a 16:15 run. Happy days and a nice finish to the week. Me at the end:
