Yesterday I ran the Malmö Loppet 10K. It was a beautiful day for a run - sunny and 18C at 15.00. My official time was 50:42. My goal was to break 50 minutes and I was on track for the first 5K, which I ran in 25:04, but I lost steam in the second half and felt myself feeling too hot. That's one of the problems with training in a mostly overcast and rainy climate and then having sun and no shade for an afternoon race. Nevertheless, the purpose of this race was to test my conditioning as I start my serious training to beat my half marathon time in September. I think I actually ran this race better this year than I would have been able to last year (in part because my training was pushed back by a severe cold/cough that took a while to clear up).
