My 5th 5K

This past weekend, I ran my town's 1st annual 5K.  It actually started a block up the street from our house and I knew the route before hand which was nice.  I also knew that the last mile was a steady uphill.  Yikes.  I try to avoid this hill whenever possible.

It was about 80 degrees with 85% humidity which was pretty terrible.  Here are the results:

Distance: 3.2 mi
Duration: 36:06 min.
Pace: 11:18 min/mi

Definitely not my best pace BUT, last Thursday I ran my quickest 5K in a year and a half.  The weather that night was perfect!  Here are those results:

Distance: 3.1 mi
Duration: 32:05
Pace: 10:20 min/mi

I'm so close to getting to a 5K in 30 minutes or less.  My pace has to be 9:40 min/mi or less.  I'm planning on running tonight after a double Piyo and then the virtual DJV5K this Saturday! :)
