This was the 5th club Duathlon and my best time was just over 1:05 hours in 2012 using my touring bike for the 2 miles run. 10 miles cycle, 2 miles run. In 2013 I only ran as I teamed up with Olly Johnston (see Olly's 10K return) and missed 2014's due to the Gold Post Box cycle concluded that same day.
2015's turned out to be not too hot nor windy nor wet so good conditions. The 2 mile run starts/ends at Skidby Mill and does a loop through Skidby village and back on a farm track/footpath with a brief but noticeable climb on the track. We set off (27 entrants) and I found myself in the lead pack with runners I never usually run with. Half a mile or so in I someone pushed myself to overtake the lead runner and, for what I believe is the first time since the 1,500 metres at school, was leading a race! I went through open mile in 5:52 - an unprecedented first ever sub 6 minute mile on a road (regardless of undulation) and still leading.
