Speeding up...

Slowly but surely it seems I am getting faster.  Today marks my second anniversary NYRR race...and first anniversary as a 'Dog. Sadly it is no longer a 5K but I showed it justice today.  I PR'd for a 4 miler, which isn't very hard considering the last time I ran a 4 miler was last spring (30:20)!  Today proved that I really do not need a stopwatch at all.  I had gone out with the intention of running under 30 minutes for the first time officially during a race (which meant I wanted to run around a 7:30 pace).  So what do I do? 29:53....7:28 pace. 

Splits: 7:35, 7:29, 7:35, 7:12.

How did I feel?  Still didn't feel like I gave it everything but that's OK.  I PR'd significantly and I know I can run faster.  It's a good feeling and another number to put on the board.  Just have to be patient...the times will drop.

Funny stat: in 2004 I ran the 5K in 28:54 (hahaha!)...4 miler this year...(.8 longer)...in 29:53....

Special kudos go out to my speedy comrade, Sempre Libera! She ran a blistering 27:02....6:45 pace!

Here's to 2006...the year of the dog!
