New 5K PR and 1st Place!!!

Saturday, April 05, 2008

I did it!! Just barely but I did it! Can you see the little numbers in the picture? 25:58!! My goal was set at 25:59. Thank God for GPS because that little screen telling me I was falling behind in the last mile was really pushing me. It was an out and back course and the first mile had some downhills so I knew the last mile would be tough uphill. I passed a girl in my age group somewhere around that last uphill and I ended up getting 1st place in my age group! My mile splits were 8:18, 8:19, and 8:30. Avg HR 194, avg mile 8:21. My next goal is a new 10K PR.
