AM run for local 5k race:
3.66 mi. jog to Mill Race course - 29:04,
Abby Brinkman 5k race - 19:03 (4th overall, 2nd AG)
The course for this race runs through a lot of turns, grass, and loose gravel. ITs an out and back on a narrow path, so on the way back I was having to put on the brakes for people heading out (not paying attention and running 3-4 abreast on the path:( ). Overall, the effort level was there, just not the time.
The mile splits were progressively worse due to increasing amounts of runner traffic near the end as well some legs that didn't get up some hills: 5:51, 6:16, 6:24, 0:32
4.25mi jog back to house - 34:40
Run from the Sun 5mi. race near Indy (7pm) - 30:58 (6th overall, 1st AG)
Felt like I ran better in this race than this morning - go figure :). Took the Nike watch back and exchanged for Garmin 410 :), but Garmin wasn't charged so didn't have a watch for the race. A guy I was running with at mile 1 graciously gave me mile 1 split of 6:03. After that, I felt myself slow down progressively. However, it did feel pretty good to pass one of the better known local guys at about 4.5 mi. and hold onto the 6th place finish.
