Pollsmoor 10km race

The wind of the last couple of days was taking a break, and the sun was out!!! It was still almost 30 as I left home on my run to the start, why drive when the race is only 8km away and you need a warm-up

Pollsmoor 10km race, Plan before the weekend was to run 33:59, Like that was going to happen, so the plan changed, I would go out fastish and then run for money... (Nice thing about being old!!!)

On the start line I saw Gugs, none of the other guys were there!!!

See I'm looking to my left at Gugs (all the way on the right with oranje top)
A 1st km of 3:23 had me in 2nd with the 3rd 40+ just behind me. I hear that Gugs went through 1km in 2:55, I haven't done that since the turn of the century  I was pleased he only lasted 3km before he fell apart... (or it would have been me falling apart)

3;23 3:31 3:27 3:43 3:42 17:48
I now know 2nd was mine so I decided to aim at breaking 36min
3:40 3:37 3;34 3:39 3:31 18;03
2nd 40+ 10th finisher

Next story, a weekend in the Breede Valley...
