Sometimes there’s a big PB bubbling under the surface. If you can do it in training – it won’t be long until it clicks in a race. We can’t wait to see just how fast Jay can go over the 5K distance!
“Been a bit quiet this week, but I had a great session on Tuesday on the track 10 x 300s (all under 54seconds) felt really good and full of speed!! That night I spent a lovely 5hours in hospital getting admitted for a nerve problem in my shoulder, arm and wrist!! Fast forward to last night Christleton 5k … one of the fastest around the North West.
I was buzzing and definitely knew I was in PB shape (sub 16:34) and the plan was to settle into 5:17 – 5:20 min miles rather than bombing off and holding on.
I did my first mile in 5:17 but then it went all over the show I lost my rhythm and didn’t feel comfortable at all and I knew a PB wasn’t on mile 2 was 5:31 followed by 5:37 the only saving grace for myself was that I clocked 16:55 another sub 17.
To be disappointed with that time says a lot about how far I’ve came past 6 months going from trying to beat 17:24 ( for 3 years) to now consistently going sub 17. Suppose this race can be written off … back to the track on Tuesday 👌🏻💨🏃🏻♂️ On the a more positive note by better half knocked a huge 14 seconds off her PB setting a new Club Record in the process 18:28 😎 so proud!!”
