Plan was sub 21, 6:55,6:45,635,Go

Went out a little fast & just dug deep to try to hold pace ... so it was not planned as such, but probably one of the best executed races I have ever run:





That is a 5:57 pace 160 meter kick, I was just happy to still be kicking!

I have a 10k in two weeks, originally my goal was sub 44, but now I am thinking sub 43 ... with a stretch goal of sub 42. Either way, I am thrilled with the rate of my progress, always good to be ahead of schedule & honestly with 12 weeks to go, I need to transition from fast running to running longer!

This week I am travelling & getting scans @ NCI to assess the enlarged lymph nodes in my neck ... praying the doctors give me green light to proceed on my journey & come back in another 3 months ... post BQ @ Mt Hood June 29.

Debating signing up for a 10 miler in Harrisburg Saturday as a fast training run ... maybe 7:30,7:25,7:20, etc down to 6:45 ... which would be my 42 minute 10k pace. :)
