results say 20:09. so close! very good.
4 pr's from my speedwork group...so it is possible. dan strieker only 7 sec ahead of me
Not exactly the same course, but my time on the old Y-Connection course is the fastest 5K I've run in since turning 40 (there's no point in comparing any time at a short distance race to what I was running in my 20's).
was that concurrent w cycling, Eric? What was your LT PR?
well done, I appreciate what it takes to run a time like that . . . good to know it is possible, even reasonable, given the appropriate training.
The Race To Cure Lymphoma course at St. Louis Mills really is flat. That was certainly my fastest 5k. Sadly, I left my garmin on top of the car, so I don't know what the time was.
Edit: Actually - October 30, 2010, 10k race. 19:26 for the first 5k and 19:54 for the second.
I recall doing a really terrible job of pacing you in that one! As we ended the first lap, I looked at my watch and thought, "Wow, I didn't do him any favors." I was really happy that you held on to break 40 because you probably would have done it easily without me.
@Rudy, yes, my 5K PR came when I was primarily cycling. For distances that short, the extra muscle mass isn't much of a handicap.
I remembet it as the first mile that was fast, you adjusted after that and It worked out in the end.
2 back to back, that was awesome. maybe it was the weather? Maybe look for a nice 5k course in the fall?
Well, it was a 10k race.... The weather was perfect, if I recall. I'm planning to do the Alpine half at Council Bluff and then the 50 at Tunnel Hill. No plans for shorter stuff but see what comes up in mid october.
I think with some mental fortitude i'd have broken 20 on this race. I don't think fitness was the issue. That middle mile has been my un-doing every year.
