One Goal Down...

Monday, April 23, 2012

I am very happy to report that I can check goal #1 off the list:

Yes, I did achieve a 5K race time of under 30 minutes: 28:26 was the official time, tho my Garmin said a few seconds less. I'll take the official time, that's okay with me. My previous best time in a 5K was 31:16, so that's almost 3 minutes off my time! Almost a minute per mile faster in the space of about 8 months. I'm very happy about it.

I was also able to go out the next day and run a 6 mile tempo run and felt really good doing it. Here's hoping that all bodes well for my half-marathon coming up this Saturday.
