First race since March, and in totally grim conditions, so wasn't expecting much.
Set off at a comfortable pace which I maintained up to the 2 mile mark, overtaking a few here and there but mostly staying well within my limits. Once we got down by the river found I was able to overtake a few who were struggling with the uneven terrain and was surprised by how comfortable that felt.
Tucked in behind some yellow-vested guys along the railway line, not expecting to go past them, but as we got to the 3 mile mark they began to slow, so picked 'em off. Overtook a few more coming up the last hill, still amazed by how bouncy I felt. Finished strongly and with plenty left in the tank.
3rd woman, woohoo! Beat my time from two years ago by a minute and a half. How the improvement has come about, I have no idea. Pleased, though! Will enter the Oxford half marathon now.
Running warm up/down 15:00 
Core Conditioning 20:00 
Running 50:41  8.3 km (6:06 / km)
Very gentle so as not to overdo before tomorrow's race.
