The last 5k (of a Duathlon)

Somehow I seemed to have run a 5k or two too many. Last weekend it morphed into the European Duathlon championships. What on earth was I doing there competing for my country. All I wanted to ever do was run 5k a little bit faster. Maybe because I would never be able to run 5k alone as fast as my age-group equivalent Mo Farrah? Who knows (me! I couldn’t)

So there I was running 10k quite fast (for me) and cycling 40k (not so fast) and running my beloved 5k at the end (at a I’ve just-run-and-cycled-a-long-way-pace). For that is what a standard duathlon is. I tell you though if you really train for just 5ks then a duathlon is quite hard. No really an English-understated QUITE hard (ie bloomin’ hard)
