The weather was awesome, 60's, cloudy, had the slightest bit of rain sprinkling on me as I ran... it just felt really great to be out there today!
I had Garmin Electra on solely for documentation purposes. I decided I was just going to run at whatever pace felt good and not care if I had 12 minute miles. Remember folks, I'm still in marathon recovery mode.
Color me surprised when I was done and looked at my results! As far as I know, I've never run a sub-30 5k before. I had a pretty sweet run - negative splits even! Not sure where it all came from since I'm usually so frickin' slow, but I'll take it. Yeah, I realize my "fast" is other runners' horrifyingly slow pace. I can live with that!
Anywhoo, it was a fun way to do a run. Virtual cowbell, virtual spectators, I even raised my arms in victory and cheered as I crossed the virtual finish line. I guess that makes me an actual dork in a virtual race, or maybe just a runner prone to hallucinations.
Whichever, I can live with that, too!
