Today I went with Ali, and her friend Louise, to run a trail race that was described as about 5 miles, mainly flat with a sting in the tail. I had decided to try and maintain 9 min/miles. I actually found the race hilly, lots of short sharp climbs that hurt! But I enjoyed it. Ali passed me after about a mile, but was only just ahead of me till 3 miles where she pulled out a bit, before really getting me in the last bit. But I was only 33 seconds behind her so I was pleased. I also just beat Ron Hill!
8:55 min/mile pace
