At yesterday’s Watermelon 5k, I ran 20:35.
This is not a bad time considering:
- I’m 50
- I’m a sprinter
- I have not been training for 5k races
So, I was pleased with the time. It was about where I figured it would be, based on the way I measure my progress.
The plan was to run 6:50 mile pace until the final 800 meters.
It worked out better than I expected: Mile splits – 6:45 – 6:40 – 6:35.
Running negative splits is incredibly difficult. I hope to do it at 400 meters also – which is unheard of.
I never said I follow where the path leads, did I? 🙂
See ya tomorrow?
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
