        Cool. Reaching a sub-10:00 pace is very cool, indeed. CongratulationsSmile

                        Nice, that 5K PR seems primed to fall.

                          Big grin Thanks, I am excited. My first race is in February (5k) and I cannot wait, I expected to break 29 minutes but I honestly think I could break closer to 25-27 minutes. Last  night's splits were:

                          Mile 1 - 10:13

                          Mile 2 - 10:23

                          Mile 3 - 9:46

                          Mile 4 - 9:56

                          Mile 5 - 9:48

                          Mile 6 - 9:12

                           

                          I think I can do better, mainly because my legs were still a bit tired from Sunday's lunges and squats. I am sure that if I warm up for at least a mile before the race starts, I should be able to stay near 9 minutes.
