5km TT - Lower Hutt Parkrun course
Absolutely perfect conditions with zero wind, so chose this course over Porirua as it's a bit faster. Jonny offered to run with me as a pace maker/someone to chase. Didn't really have much idea how fast I could go at the moment but was kinda hoping to be about 19mins. Have just been doing longer tempo sessions but I ran 19.15 solo in December when I was struggling with exhaustion/really unfit so I'm feeling a lot fitter since then.
So set off at that pace but even before I hit the turnaround I knew it was going to be a grind. Struggling to hang on to Jonny and getting slower and slower. Stopped even looking at the watch by this point and just crawled across the finish line. Disappointing but at least there's nothing to race for at the moment anyway.

Really struggling to keep running. Had to walk home from the lights.
