5k Time Trial


: 7.00 Mile(s) : 00:00:00 : : New Balance 680v6 3/3/21 : 0.0

Daily Note

Between 16:45-50, miscounted laps loooool.

Basically felt like I couldn't go much faster than 79-80, which didn't feel too too bad, but then blew up the last mile, and totally lost it mentally when I thought I had 600 left but actually had 200 left.

Always been bad at time trialing and always been bad on the track and always been bad at 5ks and always been mediocre at running, and wore my trainers and did it on the East River track which I've heard is slightly long. With the extra lap, Garmin had me at 3.43 miles in 18:10, which is 5:18/mile, which is more like 16:30 for 5k. Also had a long week at work and a bad week of training, and also not in track shape at all.

End of the day, something is inaccurate here and I'm gonna give myself benefit of the doubt and say I'm in far better shape than 16:45-50, but still need to get my act together when the going gets tough. Just haven't had to do that in a while.
