Saturday was my first 5K of the year. I went into it as a test race. I'd trained pretty hard for several days prior & I just wanted an idea of where I was at speed wise. Pretty good by the looks of it. 19:02 on a hilly course with a strong headwind every time I went downhill or on the flats. I was pretty sore too, so I'm very happy with a time 2 secs slower than the Turkey Trot in November. I would call this race harder than Turkey Trot if for no other reason than it has less people & I had to run most of the race by myself. I ended up 4th overall & 2nd in 31-40 (strange age grouping)
I got a Garmin Forerunner 210. Its pretty cool, especially the pacing feature. It kept me from going out too hard & I was able to run descent splits. Plus it up loads all my data.
