First 3 miles were done on a 350 metre Tarmac loop in the town park. It's quite flat and conditions were calm. Then moved out onto the road when some dog walkers and their out of control animals joined me! I was out of breath early on, about 3-4 mins in but it didn't get too much worse. I was able to speak a few words, such as 'thank you very much, how are you'. Legs felt and body felt good. When I finished I was tired, but again not busted, as I could have talked in short sentences. Mile times were 5.37 - 5.29 - 5.26 then 3.29 for the last 1k. Through 5k in roughly 16:50. I reckon I could have held this pace until 5 miles or so, maybe a bit longer with company or something to focus on. This went better than I thought.
