sounds classic park run. awesome.
It was good fun but painful. Also a reminder as to why the 5k race is a brutal distance and how far I have dropped in speed over the last 20 years (I used to run this distance in the high-17 / low-18 minutes range without too much problem). Will have another crack this coming weekend. Have set the benchmark nice and low so hopefully will eb able to improve relatively easily :-).
Thats one of the beauties of the Parkrun - the PB and comparison. Look forward to write up!
