After the excitement of the weekend it was back to the serious business of 10k racing for me. Tonight was the Clydebank 10k, the second race in the Polaroid Series. I was hoping for a significant improvement in my poor start to the series last week at Helensburgh, not least because Clydebank is a flatter faster course. It was good to see a few more Victoria Park runners out this week - I think there were five of us competing tonight. All started off OK and I went through the first 2 or 3 km at a reasonable pace but by half way my pace had slipped back and I felt I was working very hard. Finished in 37.08 - a bit quicker than last week but I was still some way short of my target - where has my speed gone?
Another well organised race and I got a text on the way home to confirm my time and position - 46th position, gun time 37:10 and chip time 37:08.
Next up is Dumbarton, the fastest of the 4 races in this series.
