About a week or so ago I won (yes won again) free entry to a womens run in Copenhagen called Alt for Damerne Løb. I could do a 10k or a 5k. I choose a 5k as my oldest son wanted to cheer me on and I didn't want him to sit by himself for too long.
I decided to try for a new PR in the 5k distance. My best time up to this was 28 minutes and 2 seconds so I was hoping to try and get into 26 minutes something but knew it would be hard to do that.
My sons best 5k is 26 minutes and 27 seconds so I was secretly hoping to get near this time :-)
I had to start near the back as I didn't get my number sent by the post. This meant I was behind lots of women that I was faster than. I knew this was going to be a weaving in and out race! It was.
I tried to get my pace at around 5:10/5:15 and then just ran.
I got my PR!! I finished in 26 minutes and 34 seconds with a pace of 5:13 :-) I am very happy with this time!!
