Day 242/365 – Avon Road Relay

A minimum distance run today, but it was a fast one as the middle leg in the Avon 5k road relay club championships. I was running mostly on my own as the field was strung out after the first leg so only had a couple of cars and a horse to contend with. I did manage to overhaul another Bristol and West runner at around the 4km mark, and managed not to get passed myself. My Garmin gave me a time of 21:21, but I didn’t manage to stop it as a crossed the finishing line, so it should come out at around 21:19 when the official results are published. That would equal the second fastest time I’ve ever run for 5k. Even though our team was in the FV35 category the organisers counted us as senior ladies instead so we ended up with 3rd place and medals (I don’t think there were enough senior ladies teams):
