I ran the third 5k in my 3 race series and at the bottom of the post you will find my complete times but I finished this one in 34 minutes 26 seconds a HUGE improvement in my time. I went out fast, probably too fast but I kept it up, the 1 mile sign wasn’t there so I really had no idea how I was doing, I felt like I was going sloooooooooooooooow, but clearly I was not. They took the hill out this time so probably gained a minute there but that’s still a minute off each mile! When I got home we walked the dogs as storms threatened and I’m glad we did because it bucketed rain and hailed for a minute as well. The rain was coming down so hard it sounded like someone was spraying a hose at the windows. For lunch we had leftover chicken souvlaki and for dinner I made buffalo chicken and blue cheese meatloaf, a bit too strong on the blue cheese for me but I’ll adjust that.

The first race I was in week 5 of couch to 5k and I walked a fair amount of it (basically jogged 5 minutes, walked 3), the second race I ran all but about 100 yards of the hill and the third one I ran all of it.
