Rowe Running

BPTT Update - 30 June

By on david parkrun sharon

We’re back at BPTT and it decided to rain most of the way round during this weeks 5k time trial. The weather was actually ideal (rain is a good thing) and there was little wind.

I hoped to run just under 19 minutes and came home in 17th place (my second best ever finishing time) with a time of 18:51. I ran fairly strongly, but there was certainly more in me if I had needed it. After creeping past I think one person on the final straight I pushed on to maintain my position and not go for a faster time.

Sharon finished in 270th place with a time of 30:21. There were 304 finishers.

In other news, after my comment about Danny not running fast enough a couple of weeks ago, he ended up winning the Bushy Park Time Trial on his 51st attempt. Well done to you.
