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.
