runlondon 10K

Took part in the North Vs South duel in Hyde Park this morning. Good fun, although with so many people it's really packed and you spend a fair amount of time swearing internally about the people around you getting in the way :) Managed 55:45 which wasn't what I was hoping for (not as fast as last year, for instance) but still not bad considering I'm still at a Body Pie Index of 32.

As with last year, it was fun up to the half-way mark, but then dragging back up to the north side and along the top seemed to go on for ever.... I got into a weird zone-- normally I can concentrate on my breathing, and everything flows properly, but I just couldn't get into that this time. Maybe the pressure of the moment put me off? Oh well, need more practice then :)

Not sure what to do next--- hopefully not lay off until next summer like I did last year! Considering the Reading half-marathon next spring which would make a nice challenging goal to aim for.

Split times from stopwatch so not canon.
