Nice Race Julia. Seem like your ability has improved, time to work in a little race strategy. Not sure if your coach gives you a race strategy but maybe start out a little slower like 6:20 and maintain or build increasing the pace as the race goes on. Part of racing is going with the competition but also positioning yourself in the race at the beginning so you can have the most success. In college we always used to talk about doing our racing over the last 25% of the course. So for you think about getting to 4k and then dropping the hammer rather than racing early and falling off.
