On this day:

BAL Promotion Match 5k, 6 Miles Total

HURRAH! We got promotion, with a glorious 60 point lead over 3rd placing Norwich AC, but sadly a meagre 16 points adrift of Gateshead. The full results of the match can be found here. My 5k was, as per usual, rather unspectacular. I managed to run another 'solid time' (or 'average' time, depending how you look at it). The details are below:

11 minutes warmup in BY NB 834's
BAL Promotion Match B String 5k in Puma Harambee's (6mm compression tiered pins)
16:33 (3:10, 3:19, 3:21, ???, 6:41), 5th place B string
I went out a little bit too hard, and (resultantly?) had no extra gear when it counted
11 minutes cooldown in BY NB 834's
6 Miles Total

In the race itself, I was pretty much isolated after the first 400m, apart from the guy who was just too far away for me to catch (the closest I drew the gap to was around 20m), so it was basically a time trial, in terms of drafting anyway. In that context I'm quite happy, and it bodes OK ('well' would be too strong a word) for the coming cross country season.

I'm not sure if I'm going to like being the BAL next year now! Unless I improve significantly thisWinter, on the rare occasions I do get selected, I'm going to look like a right prat. Weir will love that...
