Ran in today's Shamrock Shuffle 5K here in Logansport. Thought I did better than my last 5K, but alas...40:55. It was still a 13 minute mile which isn't bad for me. I thought it was my personal best, but it was 15 seconds longer than last fall. Oh, well.... One of my problems this morning was that my shins & calves were really aching during the first 1 1/2 miles. I think I need to walk the first block and then start running more slowly in the beginning of the race. I don't usually have this problem when we're training, and so I think I need to keep with my normal routine to avoid these issues. Anyway, I finished the race this morning, and I'm pleased to have done that! Woo-Hoo!!!!
