I went out into the bleak streets this evening with the good intention of doing a 5 miler. About 1 mile into the run a bloke across the road came level with me he was also out running. So i increased the pace to get ahead but he then did the same.
The last i saw of him was a tiny speck about 400 meters in front of me while i through my efforts to try and keep up was completely blown out.
3.4 miles was all i could manage.
