The route was around Quarry Lakes and about 95% flat (much nicer than my last 5k!)
I probably jogged about 40% of the course and fast walked the rest, which worked out well as I finished the race in 53:35 (it was just over 5k). Was super pleased when I checked my phone as I made a new PR for my 5k - I took 2mins 45secs off my previous PR :)
One thing I did notice is that I need to work on my breathing during the times I jog, as I tend to hold my breath - don't know why! So need to try and work on a breathing strategy so I can work on jogging for longer. This time I had no aches during or after, so I think this is a great sign my body is coping well, also this week I have done lots of walking too, which I am sure has helped.
Another medal and bib for my display, my medal rack is now full so need to look at buying a new one.
I love the super cool shirts and medals from Brazen racing - definitely makes it fun to participate, and as usual there was lots of yummy snacks available after the race. My next 5k is a virtual one, its the Jelly Bean 5k, which i will be running on March 23rd, not sure which location I will choose for it yet though.
My April 5k I am still trying to decide on - I really want to do the Diablo Trails Challenge, BUT the elevation over the course is 558ft and that is putting me off - I haven't found any other races for April yet - so I think I may need to take the plunge and sign up for this one, I certainly won't be making any new PR's that race!!
