Run warm up/down 14:15  1.6 mi (8:54 / mi) +10m 8:44 / mi
Run over to Allston for my first 5k ever.
Saw a guy running up the onramp towards the toll plaza on to the westbound Turnpike. Uh …
Run race 18:17  3.1 mi (5:54 / mi) +47m 5:38 / mi
So, the 5k. Weather eerily reminiscent of last spring's marathon debacle: cool, dry, breezy, and very sunny. I did some strides before and lined up in the 5th or 6th row and realized I'd probably want to move up. Tied shoes, gun went off, and I burned some matches getting a better position.
I felt good for the first uphill mile and worked my way in to maybe 7th place, running a 5:47 split even uphill and into the wind. My legs were not exactly fresh after yesterday's "fun" though, and didn't respond to more power. I didn't have the ability to put the hammer down and got passed by a pack and didn't keep up with them. Sub 6 all the way, but I should have dramatically neg-split the last downhill (downhill, with the wind) but didn't. A bit of a kick down Brighton Ave but not nearly enough to break 18.
Well, there's always next time. Without 4 hours of orienteering the day before. Even still, that's a vdot of 55 exclusive of the climb, which would predict a 2:55 marathon. Throw in the attackpoint-calculated climb metric, it would be 2:48. So, okay.
Run 14:30  1.4 mi (10:21 / mi)
Run home, with food and beer. Not fast.
