This morning was the Frigid 5k. I had a few goals, one was to beat my treadmill time, which I did not. But I did run the entire race with no walking, and I did the race like I planned. I started slow, 9:59 for the first mile, and finished feeling strong. I missed the 2 mile marker sign because it was on the other side of a bend in the road. I was busy looking out for ice on the turn and missed the sign. Chip time was 28:41, my polar time was 27.32 (adjusted for temperature and wind-chill).
Overall I felt really good. When I had good form I felt REALLY good. During the second mile I really hit my ChiRunning form because it was flat, on the hills I had a harder time. My right foot didn't feel bad at all. The only issue I had was when my left shoe came untied. After the finish they had drinks and bread/cookies inside. The race was lots of fun and I'll do it again next year.
