PB 5K solo run..

Like in many things in life when one has a rhythm or flow going then one can usually take one's performance to the next level. This is what happened during one of my training runs last week. I started off to do my usual 9K to 10K run in the EGL route with a average target pace of between 5:15 and 5:30. I got off the block quite fast (which by the way is not recommended by the experts) and covered the 1st Km in about 4 and a half minutes. I felt very  good and realised that I might be able to sustain a sub 5 minutes per Km pace for a while. I managed to do  that and hit the 5Km mark in 23 minutes 39 seconds - almost a minute faster than my previous best at last year's Urban Stampede which was 24 minutes 34 seconds. This helped me erase the disappointment of a slower finish(25:33)  in this year's Urban Stampede. I eventually did 10K in 49 minutes 30 seconds and 11K in just under 55 minutes - a great tempo run!

As a visitor to Bangalore this coming weekend (10/11 October), where would I be able to find a listing of races run in Bangalore or environs on that weekend (preferably would be Fm but would be willing to do a HM)? i have looked and seen nothing ...

Hi Martin

There is no FM or HM happening in the Bangalore area that weekend. You can check for some training runs that various runnign groups maybe doign in and around Bangalore. Also there is a cyclothon on 11th oct but registrations for the same are closed. Where are you going to be staying in Bangalore? If you send me your mail id I can connect you with a few runners who are likely to be doing 20K to 30K training runs that weekend
