Well I just keep shaving time off my 5k runs. I ran another one on Saturday. This time it was a really close shave though! I only shaved 11 seconds off my time from the spring.
I was hoping for a minute or two but I was still having some trouble with deep breathing from my cold-which is still trying to hang on even today. Blasted cold! There's another 5k in town in early December so I'll see how I do for that one. Maybe that's where a minute or two will come off.
Being that it was 48 degrees and spitting rain I realized I have not yet acclimated my body to running in the cold yet this year. I was wearing gloves and four layers of shirts. Just before mile two the gloves came off and I didn't really get hot until after the race was over and I didn't have the air blowing on me.
In the end, I made progress towards my personal goals so I'm happy with the race!
