Basingstoke 2017 5k
Today was my first race in a year. It was the 5th edition of the Basingstoke 5k and my 5th attempt.
After leaving a job in London, where I worked for over a year, I've slowly been training back to an acceptable level of fitness (running to the office from Waterloo and back most days kept me running but there was too much sitting to really be fit). So I wasn't really sure where I would come on todays race.
I was delighted to finish with a time of 25:40, coming 112 over all and 18th female! It just shows that the training is worth it. With this reassurance I can start to think about improving my 10k time.
