I set a new 5k tonight at the Gaslight 5k in Jeffersontown, KY. Didn’t feel much up to finishing, even at the start, feeling winded from jog to the start.
It was roughly 79 degrees at the start, which is a little too warm for any distance race. I started off my first kilometer at a 5:55 per mile pace, so obviously, I went out too fast.
I really felt the will to finish about halfway through the race, but managed to find a little bit of kick left to manage a PR when I saw the clock still had about thirty seconds left before my 20:59 PR.
My new PR: 20:52.
