I had to go all the way back to April, 2006 to dig out my official 5K P.R. With the help from Dirt Runner, I was able to post 24:44 at that RTW 5K. Today's run was scheduled to be an easy 5K run after this weekend's 10 miler. I wasn't able to get up this morning, after hearing the rain and rumbles of thunder, it was an easy decision to hit the snooze bar. Even so, one should always try to run in the mornings. Your races are almost always in the morning and you get to go out before the events of the day can ruin a late afternoon run. So was the case today. I was positively P.O.'ed coming home from work and my ride home only exacerbated the situation. So, after walking the dog, I went for an "easy" run.
Mile 1: 8:20
Mile 2: 7:53
Mile 3: 7:44
Time: 24:40 P.R! Unofficial however.
Sitting here, typing this entry, with a Shiner Blonde on one side and left over California Pizza Kitchen Pizza on the other, I feel soooo much better. Once again, I am grateful for my running abilities. I am able to use this skill to relieve myself of some serious stress. Keep running friends.
