My second ITMB Wiezcorem run here in Krakow. Another beautiful thursday night. Felt a little tight going into the run, but was still hoping for a good outcome. Got a little more normal warmup in this time, 1.5 with some good stretching. took out hard from the start this time and really settled in quickly to a nice pace. 5:32 first mile, better than last week by a few seconds, hit the turn right around 8:30, so I knew it was going to be close on sub-17, felt the full brunt of the wind after my turn, but it didn't seem to effect me much. What really slowed me down was the constant tight squeezes with all the walkers and bikes on the course, almost had to completely stop at one point with about .3 left that may have cost me sub-17, oh well - what can you do. second mile was 5:25 (10:57 at 2 miles), final mile was 5:29 (3 miles in 16:26), just hanging on + 35 seconds for the .11 to make it 17:01.5, 5:28 pace by my watch and a perfect 3.11 to boot. They had some stopwatch problems I believe and they had me at 17:04 or 17:05, but I know how close I actually was to sub-17 and I couldn't believe I just missed it. Oh well, they told me I have the course record now (which is cool because I've never held one before - kind of neat!). it is a 20 second improvement on last week and my best time since 2012. I should be able to take a few more cracks at the 5k here before I take break on this cycle. overall, happy with my effort, and another wonderful run and experience. 2.4 cool down
