5k PR!

Distance: 3.1 m
Time: 20:41
Location: Treadmill
Total Miles: 99.5 m
Total Time: 15:49

What was to be a 3 miler with a sub 21 minute time as a goal turned out to be a new PR in the 5k. I went in with a good game plan of running the first mile in the high seven's and work my way up every fifth of a mile from there. I realized at about the 2.5 mile mark that I had a shot at my PR if I was willing to push myself through the last half mile or so. I went with it and found myself running at 11.3 mph for the final quarter mile to finish out in a 20:41 effort, carving off 6 seconds from my previous mark. This is good news going into my 8k on the weekend. Fingers are crossed.
