5k time trial at liberty park. 18:38 (6:02, 6:02, 5:59, 34)
my prediction for this time trial was 18:27; james'sss prediction was less precise (!!) -- he said 18:20s or 30s. i thought i could cut off about 20 seconds from the back-to-back 5ks i did last week, but this was as fast as i could go today.
this ties my liberty park time trial PR -- i also ran 18:38 last june when it was ~40 degrees warmer and i was nearly naked. today i was wearing three layers and bulky, non-aerodynamic gloves. so i am whiteboard markering this up as "ok"
