Running 15:06  5.0 km (3:01 / km)
Not a great. Feels like I've trained well and consistantly since last year but doesn't seem like I've actually improved running wise...
Got into quite a bad place at the start, even after what I wrote last year, maybe 6-7 rows back. And the first lap seemed even worse, narrower than I remember and not sure why they'd coned off half the road round the top bend. Anyway should have run better from there. Unlike last year HR wasn't nearly as high this year either. Thought I'd seen Murray a couple of times during race but only worked out with 1.5 laps to go it was him (no brown vest!). With a lap to go I had 3mins to break 15 which would be a struggle, just focused on Murray's back but couldn't quite stay with him although wouldn't have made sub 15 anyway. Also took wrong size racing shoes with me, though not sure how much difference that would have made.
3.02, 3.00, 3.03, 3.05, 2.58.
