Pre-race routine:

First ever 5km race.

2 Extra large Tim Horton's coffees
Event warmup:

6km easy pace warm up. Run up that first km and dreaded the idea of racing on it. Oh well.
  • 19m 36s
  • 5 kms
  • 03m 55s  min/km

First time I ever do a 5km so didn't know what to expect especially with the first km uphill. I know there is no such thing as 'pacing' a 5km, but I didn't want to sprint up the hill and die.

The pack prevented me from going out too quickly so I guess that's a good thing. Once at the top of the hill I just lengthened out my stride and felt alright.

My achilles tendonds are giving me problems so this was a test to see how they would like some faster pace stuff. All good.
I did not look at my wath at all. I just ran comfortably hard

Splits Avg/Max HR
4:04 156/168BPM
3:53 163/164BPM
3:51 166/169BPM
4:00 168/170BPM <- Brain tuned out here
3:42 170/172BPM
What would you do differently?:

In hindsight I could have pushed more. But am more than happy with this result this early. I have done very little faster pace work.
