Louie's Run 5K, New Bedford MA.
So, here it was the first race back.
Got there early, ran from Scott's house to the start, signed up and went for a 2.5 mile warmup.
Gun went off and the first 5 went out quick. I knew I couldn't go sub-5 and hope to hang today, so I went 5:05, while the rest went 4:55 and basically kept that gap for the next 2 miles. 5:21 2nd mile with the hill and headwind, as expected, but then finished decently with a 5:10 and a kick for 16:05, 5th place and 1st Master. Not bad, considering.
Cooled down for 3.5 and felt no pain.
Really couldn't ask for much more at this point. Looking forward to more.
week- 45 miles
