I ran the Croydon 10K yesterday, in 33:32. I was quite pleased with the time; it was a hilly course with lots of sharp turns so it was hard to get a rhythm going. It was slight improvement on two weeks ago and I hadn't done any serious training in the interim.
I am off to Beijing tomorrow and I am going to take the week as enforced rest. I haven't had more than two days off running all year.
I am still aiming to do a sub 33:00 time at the Brighton 10K in late November.
