This was a PR run. I went to bed last night thinking that I might be able to run a PR this morning (just felt good). I did not run yesterday and therefore was rested for a good attempt.
Slowest was the first km. After the second one I thought that I might be blowing my chance by running too fast early on. My goal was 5:06 per Km. When my third Km was over and I was still under 5 I felt I had a chance, but did not want to fade in the last Km. At Km 4 I was pleased to see my time under 5:00, but was starting to get a bit concerned for my finishing time. I decided to walk 10 seconds before finishing strong. And strong I did!
Previous PR was 26:09. My goal today was a 25:30 effort. Imagine my surprise to see 24:39 at the end of my run! w00t
One of my goals in 2007 was to run a 25:00 5K. I was not getting close, but was better in 07 than 06. Can I pull another minute or two off this year?
