In not so speedy conditions.

"no so speedy conditions" = how slow I am. It is kind of sad that a decent effort is so slow these days. It is hard not to remember the old days and old times.

I was happy to meet one of my 5K goals - passing the 2 mile split in less than my 5K PR! That's not a given these days.

Yes, I can certainly empathize. I try not to think about the sadness too much. Setting new goals or different challenges is helpful.

Two questions:

1) What is your 5k PR?

2) If a person has only run a certain distance once, does that count as a "PR"? For a PR to be "record" it has to be comparative to something else, no? It's just a philosophical question I have about the PR.

1) 16:42. It was a long time ago.

2) Well, I'd count once as a PR. But a philosopher might have a different answer!

1) Wow!!!

2) I concur.
