Merry Christmas to everyone! Here's hoping all your wishes for Christmas came true.
This is just a workout note for my own records. I did a 5K time trial (actually 3.125 miles, 12.5 laps) on the track yesterday and another on Friday. Times were quite close: 34:47 and 34:37 for an average pace of 11:06 min/mile in those workouts.
I seem to be able to push myself to run nearly a minute per mile faster in races than I do in workouts (10:13 min/mile in the 10K I ran a month ago). I think I would still not quite be able to break a 30-minute 5K. That's an excellent project for me for 2007! Of course, every pound off is said to give a runner about an extra 2 seconds per mile in "free speed", a few free seconds that way wouldn't hurt either!
