We ran the Test Yourself 5k yesterday monring. The weather was unseasonable cool for May and it was perfect for running. However, I didn't get much sleep at work on Friday night and didn't feel like running at all. I didn't know the course at all, which always bothers me. I like to know what lies ahead.
Once we got started I felt pretty good. The first half of the course was great. At the turn around we headed up hill, and it was uphill the rest of the way. I pushed hard and ran a good race. I finished in 29.35, which I am calling my new PR. The race a few weeks ago was not an official course and my Garmin measure it short. This course was exactly 3.1 and certainly challenging.
