No need for a long warm up today given the heat more like a cool down needed before the start! My aim was a sub 16-45 which seems to be the "power of 10" standard for the 5000m. After the last few weeks I was confident I could do this but the heat would be the deciding factor.

This represents a personal best (as a V40) and a 12 second improvement since the last fixture in probably more difficult conditions than the cold, wind and rain of Clairville!
The highlight of the afternoon was the flying foursome of Best, Wiles, Piggford and Stevenson smash the opposition in the 4 x 400m....the heat was good for the short stuff but I would have preferred a cooler day today! This must have been the inspiration for my 6 year old to join his Dad for a final lap of the track as the officials packed away...I'll have to watch him in the future lulling me into a false sense of security and then sprinting the home straight to claim victory!
