A second 5K in a week

As long as I’m doing these things, I might as well keep going.

Today, my wife and I ran the St. Ursaline Run for the Lions 5K.  Our niece, Molly, attends St. Ursaline, so we know the proceeds are going to a good cause.  Her brother Danny also ran with us.  When in high school at Moeller (he’s now at UC), he was a very accomplished cross country runner, so this was a breeze to him.

My goal was to better my time from last week (a 30:22), and I did that.  I ran a 29:34, so I did improve, but not as much as I had hoped.

This was my first race with the Garmin and I used the pace tool to help me keep below the bar I set, which was a 10:00 minute/mile average.  Here’s the data.

This is probably biting off more than I can chew, but I’ve felt so good in these last two races, I’m considering trying the Thanksgiving Day 10K.  We’ll see how I feel next week.
