My PR in a 5K is 28:05. That was my goal for last night. Ideally, I wanted anything with a 27 in front! I missed my goal by about 5 or 6 seconds and finished at 28:10 (or 11)...need to wait for official results. I was disappointed to say the least.
Having said that, I'm trying to keep it in perspective. My next 5K will be late fall early winter. On the course I set my PR last year. Last night it was 80 degrees. I'm much faster in the cold. Also, the race was at 7 pm last night. I prefer to run in the AM and do much better on fresh legs.
So, I guess all in all to be only 5 seconds slower in 80 degrees in the evening wasn't too shabby.
