I went to another one of the Sunstroke Series 5K races last night. My previous times have been just under 30 min, closer to 29 min, just under 29, and then last night... admist a raging down pour thunder and lightning storm I ROCKED it.
27:40. Oh. Yeah. Baby.
That's a 8:54 pace. I'm thrilled with myself, and remembered how much I love running in the rain!
I also got to feel what is was like to run close to max effort for a whole race. While my times varied just a little, I felt strong. Also, mile 3 was the fastest!!!
Last Thursday I did my own 5K then walked a tiny bit and jogged it out to 4 miles.
I was at a conference all weekend and manage to do a quick mile on the treadmill before workshops one day.
That's 4+1+3 = 8 more miles!
Mileage Goal: 125/1000
