First, 2 other things:
1. Because of my previous post, I now know that there is a large percentage of closet “So You Think You Can Dance” fans out there. YES, I had a good time. YES, I realized I thought it was Will in one of my photos when it was really Twitch (both tall, dark, and handsome men). YES, it should have been Katee in the “door” dance, but she was injured, so they had Kherington in her place. You people out there are hilarious. I love you all.
2. I had a GREAT run yesterday. I did a 5 mile tempo run that I started a little easier, and built up some nice speed throughout. I hit the turn around at mile 2.5 at 15:14, which was stellar. I thought I could negative split the run and finish under 30:00. My previous fastest 5 mile run on the same route was 30:29 back in March. I’ve never been under 6:00/mile on a training run that was over 3 miles, but half way into that 5-miler, I thought it was possible.
Well, I got back in 14:22, for a total time of 29:36, WHICH WAS AN AVERAGE PACE OF 5:55/MILE! SWEET! That was a heck-a-va run! I think my problem in my recent 5Ks was that I was going out too hard. I need to hold back more, and keep picking up the pace throughout.
3. FINALLY, here’s my costume idea for the Monster Dash 5K this Saturday. I want to take “70’s Track Star Steve,” who you saw at the July 4th 5K...
