All day long I knew that I wasn't going to run as fast this evening as I did at last week's Back Cove Weekly 5k, which is probably the reason that I didn't. Oh well. It was warmer than last week, but not hot, very dry and dusty on the path which made breathing hard quite unpleasant. Ultimately the energy just wasn't there.
I did a mile warm-up, started out fast, then slowed way down, had a good sprint to the finish and then a decent 3 mile cool down run.
0.1 mile @ 5:19
race time: 19:56
distance: 3.1 miles
total time: 50:13
distance: 7.0 miles
This weekend I've got another 5k coming up as part of the Pirate Tri which I'm doing as part of a team with two of my coworkers. Should be interesting I guess. I've already run my annual quota of road races for the year, I got into this when someone else in the office had already signed up but then bailed out. Not sure what to expect for this run, especially since I plan to do 27 miles at Bradbury the day before.
