What's your 5k PB (personal best) time? And did you train for it or did it happen by chance?

    Just wondering what everyone's personal best time for 5k is ... and whether you trained to achieve it or whether it happened when you weren't expecting it or trying for it?

    Mine is 24.50 which isn't spectacular but I worked my socks off for it and I'm super-proud of it!

    Mine's 18:34 and was completely unexpected - I spent last season focusing on increasing my 10 mile TT time on the bike and basically doing just enough running to tick over; I did one of the Sale Sizzlers for 'fun' and beat my previous PB by almost 40 seconds...

    Mine is 21:09 on by 4th Parkrun (1st was 23:40). Hadn't run since school (over 30 years ago) so can't really say I trained for it. Plenty of sub 22 minutes since but still not beaten it.
