Local 5k today, decided to jump in after I got off work early. I like evening races, so the 6:30 pm start time was nice. Rained earlier so temps were decent, probably low 70s and felt like fall, esp. in the shade. 2 mile warmup with normal prerace stuff. Seemed to be about 150 people at the start. Once the race started I felt really good, the first 1.5 was uphillish and after the turnaround, it was back downhill, I felt so strong the first half that the second half I was able to push it even though I started to fatigue. Splits were 5:46, 5:48, 5:53, and 30 seconds. Was at 8:58 at the turnaround, finished in 17:57, so that means second half was 8:59. Solid and even splits. ended up 4th place. Overall, it was such a beautiful night for a run, late summer but really felt like fall. I loved every second of it and just enjoyed getting out and getting good turnover. To break 18 at altitude after just 7 weeks of post-injury training is very promising. 3 miles cool down.
