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.
