New PR in 5k (Read 750 times)

Lia's Daddy

    I am very excited! My wife and I both ran a 5k this morning (her 2nd). I set a goal of under 24:00 which would give me a PR. I came in at 23:30 official time. I felt pretty good considering it was a very hilly course. It was nearly 2:00 faster than the same course last year. My wife did it in 28:30 which was also much faster than she thought she could. I feel like my long, slow runs are really starting to pay off. I think I can start really shaving of some time when I add speed work to my training. Big grin

    Consistently Slow

      Great job. 2 minutes faster on the same course is impressive. Smile

      Run until the trail runs out.
