RunThrough Olympic Park

Race Date: Wednesday, 11/03/2020
Race Distance: 5 Km

What should I do after a steady Half Marathon on Saturday; why not go for a 5K PB tonight? Considering I haven't run sub 25 since last July, perhaps this was a bit optimistic. Crossing the bridge from Stratford to the Olympic Stadium the strength of the wind was incredible and any attempt seemed pointless. As it was I missed it by a measly 5 seconds. My Garmin was incredibly accurate in my two recent half marathons, measuring 25m and 55m long. Today it measured 90m long. My pace updates suggested I was just inside my target but that 90m meant my pace was actually just outside. Can't blame the watch though. Consolation prize was setting my best ever age grading result.
