Kohl 5K

Had a much better race than I expected at the Kohl Elementary 5K this past weekend.  I was curious where my speed fitness was before the Bolder Boulder later this month.  With GZ pushing me I was able to hit a new PR of 18:31.  Thanks GZ!  You can see his longer report here.

My whole approach to this race was to try and run by heart rate.  Keeping it between 170-175 the first 2 miles and ignore it the last 1.1 miles.  This approach seems to work good for me for the 5K distance.  I am not sure how I am going to approach the 10K yet.  Maybe 165-170?

Anyways here is the breakdown according to Garmin Connect.
