    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.
