Brighton 10k Race

Cool and sunny. Had felt a niggle in left glute so thought about taking it easy. Busy start, lots of runners made for a slow and steady pace. As the runners spread out I set about passing a few and running a comfortable pace.

There were lots of Vegan Runners from across the UK

About 3 miles in I noticed my last 2 splits had been around 7:30 min/mile. That equates to around 45 minutes, my PB set last week. Felt good so tried to keep that pace going and see what happened.

Didn’t see mile 4 split. Mile 5 was good. Pushed hard on the out and back final mile along Madeira Drive. Didn’t glance at watch, just pushed. Missed the PB I set last week at Dalby Forest by 13 seconds. I’d lost that time early on during the first mile. Never mind, pleased to do that having run hard at parkrun yesterday and walked all over town. At least I know the PB is definitely beatable.

Fantastic running among lots of VRs and with lots of ‘go vegan runner’ shouts.
