15:45. First mile was into a bit of wind and no one wanted to lead so I slowed it down. Sadly I'm not getting to 15:30 starting off with a 5:14 first mile but hey at least I didn't blow up. That said those young mile-3K types can drop a 4:50 on me and it's all over. I fell back even after the pack pulled away but I got a huge second wind after the turn-a-round and dropped a 4:59 then a 4:57. With less than half a mile to go a young GRC guy came by me and I finished out of the money. Kind of blah about this as I wanted to be at 15:30. Even though I've not been training for the 5K I thought I'd be a bit faster. I felt strong though and probably could have managed a low 32:00 10K today but not a 15:30 5K. I'm still confident I can PR in the half next week
