Freakishly Flexible Five K, for Non Runner Nancy
It was chilly tonight, but otherwise quite pleasant for running at about -5C. I could have picked a less travelled route, but decided to run along the main streets (in particular the Danforth, which gets super busy on Friday nights given all of the greats restaurants and bars to be found there) and so I had to navigate a lot of pedestrians. Pretty much all of these fine people were quite nice and we navigated each other respectfully, though I was forced to run left and right in a serpentine fashion quite a bit. It was fun though.
I managed the 5km in 24:34 for an average pace of 4:54/km, or about 7:50 - 7:55 per mile I guess. I had intended to run a lot slower, telling myself that I was stupid to run any faster than 5:30/km pace, but I guess the added motivation of running a virtual race for a fellow flexible runner currently suffering and not able to run put a little bit of jump in my step.
Nancy, if you are reading this, I hope you get better soon and good luck!
