Every year that time comes to run the Corporate Challange race. I enjoy the race as it is a good opportunity to socialise with fellow colleagues at my organisation. After returning from a training camp in St Moritz it was a good opportunity to identify my fitness prior to Ironman UK.
My initial issue was I forgot my watch for the race and would have to run on feel. I choose to follow a colleague in the race that was running very well recently. I hang on and at 2km he just wasn’t feeling in the zone. I was easy and pushed on, as I reached the 5km point I realised I was under my 5km pace and thought a little push should nail a good time. I finished in a PB of 19:28 (3:28min/km) and who said going to V40 would be the start of a downward turn in times.
