Hi everyone, I've entered the next Swansea Harriers 5k and I've been having a couple of practice runs along the course as I live very near to it.
I'm quite suprised by the difference in my halfway split times with the second half being a lot quicker.
My last try I did the first half in 14 minutes and the second half in 9 minutes and the second half was really enjoyable.
I don't know if its the fact that I can see the finish so know how hard I can push or whether I'm not getting a good enough warm up, but the second half is just so much better.
I'm going to try and push a bit harder in the first half next time but I suspect I'll suffer for it in the second half and probably run a slower overall time.
I'll just have to try it and see I guess.
