Improvements

Today was a good day.  Despite a mishap that involved a hand towel falling in my toilet (RIP towel. RIP) and taking so long to finish my reading that I only had thirty minutes to get ready, I still managed to get to class on time.  Early even.  On top of that I headed out for a run an hour or so after lunch and despite still feeling slightly full I managed to finish my run without cramps.


It was technically my fastest 5k to date, but I'm not really sure if it's a fair comparison since I ran on a track today and, unlike my usual routes, it did not have any hills.  In any case, I'm improving. The first time I ran 5k was on January 26 and my time was 42:09 with an average pace of 13:32/mile. I ran 5k three times in February, but my fastest time was February 17 with a time of 39:41 and an average pace of 12:48/mile.  Today, I ran 5k in  39:25 with an average pace of 12:40/mile.  I know I would get faster, well, faster, if I did speed work, but that is a project for another day.  Today I'm just excited that I tried running somewhere new and I ran faster than I did last month.
