5K Run the River, Roswell, GA
Breakfast: Oatmeal and Half of a Banana (no GU)
Warm up ~ 3 miles easy run.
I was honored to run this 5K with Clarence Hartley who is a Boston legend. C.H. was the oldest marathoner to finish the 2011 Boston marathon with the age of 81. Kudos
Race strategy: Did not look at my watch and just listened to my body. Ran the whole race with a 2:2 breathing pattern. I did scream because I was out of air once in a while. Hold back but still ran hard the first 2 miles; after 2 miles I let it go; for the last 1/2 mile, I heard a guy coming in the back this pushed me and i was able to overtake the runner in front of me 20m in front of the finish. Nobody did pass me in the second half of the race. I am happy with this.
I guess my weekly mileage-increase (55miles per week currently) gets me faster without doing speed work; exactly what Sascha says. I am happy with this as i did not expect it; i was running a 22:42 in a 5K two weeks ago.
