Back in Winning Ways....

After the flight from Nairobi I finally arrived at my parents house at around 19.30 yesterday (Saturday 9th July), a short jog and some strides to help get the journey out of my legs then an early night before my first race for a while, the Felsted 10km.

Shortly after the start of the Felsted 10km
I wasn't expecting too much in this race but felt fine on the warm up. Soon after the start it was clear I was going to have a lonely run. The first half of the race was fairly flat and I passed through half way in around 15.25, the second half was a lot more undulating slowing me slightly as I finished in 31.20ish. Always nice to win a race and it's given me a good boost to my confidence, I'm sure I can get close to 30mins in my next few races, which will put me in a good position to start marathon training in August.
