An Exhausted 5K
Before I did that, however, I did manage to go for a quick run in the dark. I have had a sore throat for the past few days and today it sort of became a low grade cold. I hope a night of sleep will make it go away, but how likely is that, really?
Anyway, I did do the 5km in 28:56 for an average pace of 5:47/km. It was like moving through a cloud of yogurt, and I feel like I've regressed a great deal in terms of my pace over the past month. It wasn't that long ago when I was running long training runs in the 5:20/km range, and now I am dying just to stay under 6:00/km. At least my heart rate was still on the aerobic side, averaging 139bpm. I picked it up a bit on the last kilometre, which I completed in 5:25, and at an average heart rate of 145bpm, but let me tell ya it was tougher than it should have been.
On account of the email and softball thing I didn't get to do any foot strengthening stuff, which is a drag, but now I just want to sleep. G'night!
Garmin don't lie.
