It was cold running this evening, but the sun is starting to set later. There was a glimmer of sunlight on the horizon as late as 6:30pm. It will start getting warmer in a few weeks and I can run with less layers. It was high 30's - low 40's when I was running.
I felt a little tightness in my right calf during warmups, but it went away after stretching.
Tonight, we ran 4x1000m at our goal 5k pace with 2:15 rests. I was aiming for 4:25 each which would net me a 22:05 time in the 5k. My actuals were:
4:11 = 6:44 mile pace = 20:55 5k
4:08 = 6:39 mile pace = 20:40 5k
4:22 = 7:02 mile pace = 21:50 5k
4:17 = 6:54 mile pace = 21:25 5k
My average time was 4:15 per kilometer. If I kept that pace the entire 5k, my time would be 21:15 which would better my last 5k by just over a minute. My last 5k race time was 22:17. I should be close to matching my previous time since these times included rests. I obviously wouldn't be able to keep that same pace the whole time.
