Running 17:17  5.0 km (3:27 / km) +1m 3:27 / km
5K race at Hain's Point. I think this may have been my first road 5K not part of a winter triathlon since I was 12 so the PR for the distance was no surprise. 2nd overall, even in a very small race, was a little bit of one. Wasn't feeling absolutely tiptop at the start and probably could have gone a bit faster if no thoughts of wanting to still be able to run tomorrow at the Mid-Atlantics had been dancing in my head but the omens are not good for a PR in the 10K Thanksgiving Day since my current PR is 34:59, also set at Hain's Point, and I'm pretty sure it isn't possible to run 10K in Bethesda without gaining rather more than a meter of elevation somewhere along the course. Though I will have more competition to spur me on and no O race to save myself for that weekend so I won't abandon all hope.
Time to go check Daniels and find out whether I've been doing intervals too fast, too slow or just about right. Subjectively, grass, a section of gentle hill and a few tree roots must make quite a difference - if I can string together 5 kilometers at about 3:28 apiece, one would think 1100 meter repetitions in 4 minutes apiece with 2 minute rest intervals would be easy.
