Another decent week in the bag, One of my best outdoor threshold runs on the Monday and treadmill sessions on Wednesday and Friday and I was ready for the race on Sunday. But I had a thousand beers watching the England game Saturday night and I was touch and go whether I’d make the race….

Luckily nobody to push me and I settled into an early lead and decided to run at threshold heart rate. That felt tough – not helped by very warm and humid conditions. I finished the race in 27:54 for the win and as punishment I ran the lap a second time (same heart rate – but second lap about a minute slower). A great event which I enjoyed and I felt marginally better by the end of things.
