I am now at a point where a 21:20 5k runner must be where I am at. I have no excuses as to why this run wasn't faster. I was well rested, I laid off the leg weights, the weather was spectacular and it wasn't a terrible course.
I have my last 5k in the frenzy this Sunday, which will have a larger crowd and some ranked runners, so I will officially declare my win streak over in advance, but will still try to get under 21:00! I'm super annoyed that I have been unable to thus far!
After that, the 5k frenzy turns into the 10k tests! I have two 10k's the next two weekends after that.
Then the weekend after those 10k's are done, I lucked out and nabbed a VA Wine Country Half Marathon bib. A friend had told me awhile ago that she thought she had one to give me, but I received the official transfer on Friday and am officially in!
As such, I realized that with the exception of National Half Marathon at the end of March, I hadn't run more than 10 miles in the last 8 weeks. So, after the awards ceremony, I went home and ran 9 more miles to make the days total 14 for Saturday. It wasn't ugly, but it wasn't too terrific either, mainly because we wound up standing around for at least an hour after the race for the awards.
Anyway, that's all I have to report! Look forward to reading everyone else's race reports! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
