More participant this year, reached the start point an hour early, did some stretching and warm up.
Was quite far away from the starting mat, took almost 7 mins of walking before able to cross the start mat and run. Weather was fine with a slight sea breeze blowing and because of more participant, have to navigate through slower starter to gather my own pace.
Breakdown of run base on my stop watch.
5Km - 31 minutes
10km - 1 hrs 5 minutes
15km - 1 hrs 33 minutes
20km - 2 hrs 13minutes
30km - did not clock stop watch
40km - 4 hrs 31minutes
2.195km - 4 hrs 48 minutes
So with the addition of 6minutes my gun time should be 4 hrs 55 minutes.
Manage to hit target of less than 5 hrs.
Better than last year 5hrs 19minutes,
