I ran an 8k yesterday in St. Paul. I wanted to break 30 minutes and would be even happier if I broke 6:00-pace, or about 29:50. I split the difference and finished in 29:56. I feel pretty good about that. I feel really strong, but don’t have a lot of leg speed right now. I finished 48 seconds faster than last year. Here are my splits.
1 6:06 6:06
2 5:57 12:03
3 6:02 18:05
4 5:58 24:03
F 5:52 29:56

Consistent splits – great job!
I’m hoping to run a similar race pace when I run Crazylegs 8k next month on the 30th. Wish me luck!
Excellent race and thanks for the report Zeke!

I’m doing a 10k on the 30th, so we can compare race reports.
Congrats on running with your son. Let’s hope he keeps it up. Maybe he’ll even quit soccer for X-C. 😈

Thanks. Actually it was an 8k not a 5 mile race. So the last mile was actually about .97 or closer to 6:02.
