Happy New Year!

Failure 5k PB attempt

Before this new year greeting, I think I should report my 5000TT attempt on 27 Dec. last year. I am sorry to report this, but it wasn't successful at all. My target was 19:30, and my first k took 4 min and I was already struggling. Second k was 4:07 with big effort, then at the end of 3rd k, I stopped trying. I can think of hundreds of reasons for this result but main thing was the work situation at the end of the year. Too much stress and short of sleep (3 hour per day). Setting this attempt at this time of the year was a big mistake in the first place.

Thanks so much for your advice anyway. It will be a big help for the next attempt.
