New 5k season best
I just finished what started out as a tempo run but turned into a 5k time trial. When it was over I ran it down in 24:12, which was more than three minutes faster than anything I've run this summer! I started the season running 5k in about 29 minutes, which was kind of a let down (you always think you are in better shape than you actually are.) I got a late start to training because of illness and injuries during the spring, and with such a slow start my plans of getting a PR this season went out the window.
But after only six weeks of serious training I've already knocked five minutes off and with my best 5k in High School being around 19 minutes, I only need to trim off another five! Winter is coming fast in Utah so I don't know if I can get it done before the big freeze, but it's definitely possible. The race is on.
