warm up/down (Walking) 15:00 [1]
shoes: black+blue

Definitely not hard enough.

Park Run (Callaghan) 43:46 [3] 5.0 km (8:45 / km)
shoes: black+blue

Felt queeasy while driving to parkrun and suspected energy resources and food was low level. Really really cold with biting wind.

S-DMW - 12:21 felt fine as I started and passed 2 usual critical points feeling fine. Then it all started to unravel.I felt dizzy when I slowed, going up hill. Thought I'd reset but that didn't help much.
DMW-T 9:08 - Alternating spells of walking while dizzy and running when I wasn't. But when i stopped boy did I stop.
T-DMW 7:19 Had some hope of coming through it - this was usual sort of time for this section and was feeling more inspired and comfortable.
DMW-F 14:58 Totally crashed and burned - big triathlon guy walked with me for a while - he was concerned. But I insisted he go on after I was most of the way up the hill - I think he was glad of the distraction. He started to run, I felt better on the flat so off I went again. Not deliberately but got ahead of him and made it in well ahead of him. But when i stopped dizzy again, though less so.
Decision: next week and for next month will make sacrifice and get up at 6 and eat.
If the aim is exertion - passed with flying colours.
