Better effort than the 10k a couple weeks ago by a longshot although I'm mildly disappointed at not breaking 60. I was at 29:30 at the turnaround and felt like I was maintaining on the way back. I didn't wear a watch though so I was just guessing.

Probably need more long runs to be as strong as I'd like to be in the final miles.
