Almost 3 weeks off since my last race and this is a mere 5K. We are having a hot winter (well, 70s, but that’s pretty warm) and forecasters say that the world will come to an end in the next month, so I might as well try and run under 8 minutes per mile for my average pace today.
I felt pretty good, but found myself contending with Peter Lew (Mr. Consistency, and Mr. I-Have-the-Most-Consecutive-Boeing-Runs) and I didn’t want to overdo it (in the apocalyptic heat), so I walked about 30 seconds so that I could maintain a comfortable pace. I am pretty happy with my 24:20.
