Exhausted from a late night movie and in some sweltering heat and humidity my 5K Time Trial was not all I was hoping for. We got a chance to go see Solo. I think it was good, it definitely doesn’t live up to the other Star Wars movies, but it wasn’t horrible like some have said. We went to a late showing and got home after midnight – so technically I started Father’s Day off at a movie and Cub Foods!
It has been super muggy and hot with Excessive Heat Warnings and storms coming and going for a few days and this morning was no different. I got out for a run in between 2 storms again and the humidity was pretty oppressive. The 5K loop from home around Wirth Lake was my plan. But you know me and my watch have trouble sometimes. I couldn’t get it to start a new lap. I tried several times and was getting really frustrated and bitten by horse flies so I kept going and took a full mile warm-up.
I feel that I gave a good effort throughout and the few times I looked at my watch I was in the 7:00 minutes so I was a little surprised at the final times. But it is what it is now. 5K in 26:51 or 8:39 pace which will come into play later in training.
The total mileage was 4.87 in 46:13.
