2 mile easy run warmup in 15:06, 7:32/mi, HR 161, w/ 0.5 threshold effort.
Hard race. Still feeling a bit of the effects of the stomach bug I caught a couple days ago, but mostly recovered. 1st mile in about 5:45, including ratcheting it back at the 0.5 mile mark, so I went out too fast. Really hurting the last 2.1 miles...no real kick at the end. Not sure on time yet....didn't manage to hit the watch right away and the times aren't yet posted. But it definitely was a PR. A good reminder of how much 5Ks can hurt!
Did get to meet fellow blogger Jeff just before the race, thanks to FRB jackets we were both wearing (evidently, he can run and pay attention to his surroundings at the same time). He won the 5 miler....by what looked like a mile and a half. Wow.
Official results finally published. 18:31...a PR by 7 seconds. Now I need to run another when I'm not sick. Waah.
