i did ok considering i was nursing a sore knee. it's been ok lately but i haven't wanted to push it too hard. i've been doing short, slow runs for a month or so. didn't know if the knee would hold up but it did fine. a couple of times it started to tweak a little so i slowed down and it got better. i walked a fair amount, almost all of the last mile. just couldn't get my breath. think it was the heat that did me in. it was my third worst time for 5Ks but i'm happy since i wasn't even sure the knee would let me finish.
What would you do differently?:

not much given the knee issues.
