I DID it again - another PR!!
Me thinking deeply before the 5K. My big finish!! Yes, I set another PR today during the 5K. The weather was PERFECT and a lot of breezes too. I am completely amazing myself each race. But I think my lungs did not like how I slightly pushed myself. I finished at 31:32 - 1 minute 8 seconds FASTER than Sunday. I also came in 4th in my age catagory. I missed a medal by a little more than a minute. There was A LOT of hills on this course - more than I was used, but I pushed through them. WOW! The new IT bands worked really good during the race. I have go hit the bed for a long nap. I have work at a detail overnight so I really need my sleep - plus rest the hip too. Tommorow's a rest day since I will up until 7 am tommorow morning. Monday's cross-training. I would LOVE to get a run in too, but I will NOT push it if I need to. Splits Mile 1 - 9:15 (going downhill) Mile 2 - 10:25 Mile 3.1 - 12:52 (LOTS of the hills) Today's work-out 5K race 31:32 10:08/mile - WOOOHOO! Almost sub-10!
