5K today was good
Not quite as cold as they were predicting (lol 25 instead of 20), and it was sunny without much wind. Ran with some dude from about mile .5-2.5, when I started falling off pace. Splits were 6:59, 7:04, 7:20, and then my last kick was 5:50 pace according to my watch. So I faded a little but I wouldn’t say I died completely. Official time was 21:50, which is about a 30 second PR. The perks of only running 5Ks when I’m getting back into shape. =)
My watch had me at 3.09 but it’s close enough that I’m gonna count it. (Plus with my last 5K “PR” my watch had me at 3.06 miles). I also got 1st in my age group. So overall I’m feeling pretty good about where I’m at, and I have a better idea of what my paces should be in running workouts. Wins all around.
I’m flying to Seattle tomorrow (!!) so I should probably go start laundry so I can pack tonight.
