Last Saturday morning running club 5K for a few months. I did not run the entire way - as was the goal. However, I feel pretty good. My recovery was much better this week than last week. Here's how Garmin broke it down:
Mile 1: 12:40
Mile 2: 14:13
Mile 3: 14:16
Last 0.14: 1:30
The official timers time was 42:39 - which is almost a minute faster than last week. Also, I have a list of other 5K races that are coming up, and a buddy to run with me - to keep me on the races.
