5 km PR - 28:30
Yesterday I ran the Scotiabank 5 km in Stanley Park, and finished with a time of 28:30. My previous 5 km, which was a couple of years ago, was 28:48, so this is a personal best. The route was great - only a couple of very small hills, and it was a combination of gravel and pavement around Lost Lagoon and the sea wall. Lots of people, good weather, and an abundance of Gatorade. Except for a brief period at the end when I was sure I was going to lose my breakfast, the run was pretty easy and I had enough to sprint at the finish. Now I've got to decide whether to sign up for another 5 km and beat my time or move onto an 8 km.
