Sweat Your Thorns Off Virtual 5k

 The Boring Runner's virtual 5k Report



I ran the course of my next 5k again (4th of July Freedom Race)
I went too late it was really hot and also cars everywhere.
Once again the hill in the last miles "broke" me.  My strategy is to not try to do negative splits for this one.  The first 2 miles are flat with 2 small downhill sections and the last mile is all uphill.  I will run it one more time next Saturday! 

So here's my results for today:



Better then my time last year when I first ran that race but not close to be a PR!!!!

Thank you Adam for hosting this race!
I do have a pic with the bib but my battery went dead and I cannot upload for now, will be added later!

Heat, cars and the last mile mile uphill. Not the best situation for a 5 k but you made a very good job.

Did you forget that Old Farts like me read your blog and there is no way in the world these tired old eyes can read your Garmin like that.

Maybe EMZ can read it and send it to me. You know, being that I'm an Old Fart and all.

Way to go! That's a great idea to run your virtual 5K on an upcoming race course!

Kate said...

Way to go! And I love that you picked a more challenging course rather than a nice flat one (which would have been what I did :D)
