5000m on the track
18:28.99 -- 90, 92, 88, 88, 88, 88, 88, 88, 88, 88, 88, 88, 40
finally some good news after a very frustrating month of lethargy and underperformance. that's not to say that this one race has cured everything, but this was a big boost that i really needed. i knew this was in me somewhere, which is why i've been feeling so frustrated by not being able to bring it out.
there were two other women running right with me the whole time, which helped me to to stay engaged and keep pushing through each lap. i love the lull and smoothness of running this distance on the track. the lap counting keeps me really focused and i like getting the pace feedback so often.
one last note, my 3k split today was 35 seconds faster than last week's 3k. it really was that bad -- so bad i had to take tums (srsly i ate two expired tums for post-race dinner last week)
