Running 31:07 [3] 4.0 mi (7:47 / mi) +90m 7:16 / mi
shoes: Asics 1120

Prediction run - Hartshorne

4 mile course, with a simple aim - guess beforehand how long you'll take, no timekeeping devices alllowed. No specific knowledge of the route before you guessed either, except that a few hills were expected.

Plan was to feel comfortable on the way round, rather than blasting it. Thought was just sub 5min/k for the effort level. 31 dead was a bit too round a figure, so my guess was 31:20.

A bit hillier early on than I was expecting; cruised down on the way back but thought I'd be behind my guess. But then only had part of the Brook St hill that had been rumoured. All over relatively quickly.

Pretty amazed to be within 15 seconds of my guess - winner was 7 seconds off, so maybe that round figure wasn't too unrealistic after all! Doubt I'll ever be that close again...
