Very wet conditions although the rain stopped for the first half of the race.Many many puddles and wet gravel to navigate.
I started reasonably well running the first half at around 4.40 per Km. Not pushing it but just steady.I ran ok I suppose although way off what I want to do. At around 7 Km I slowed and started to struggle. I found the last two Km very hard and pretty much just jogged it in at 5 minute pace.
My average pace was a very slow 4.50. Race finished in the rain but that is no excuse.
A beginning I suppose.
I need to work hard at getting my over all speed up.
