The weather was fantastic. It was foggy and cold. The road was slippery due wet and many leaves. Temperature was around 3°C.

My weight on that day was 111.6 kg (0.1kg ↑ ).

I was 248 out of 477 runners. I was 183rd male. I was 16 out of 17 runners in today’s run. In Top performances table in all Rickmansworth’s parkrun runs for my age category, I am 433 out of 492(11↑) . My time was 29.37 with an average pace of 6:02min/km and an average speed of 9.9km/h, and it is my new personal best.

My aim was to run as fast as I can to be as closed to 30 minutes. I had very fast start and I keep it for first km but then I slow down to keep average speed as close 6min/km as possible. This strategy is more tiring but it pays out with PB :).

My aim for this year was to run 5km in 35min. I achieved this, so my next aim was to run 5km in 30km. I achieved both of them :). My new next aim is to be faster than average parkrunner. Currently average run time is 00:28:46 . However, my focus in to run Watford 10km in 70 minutes.
