I was finally able to access Athlinks today and it is official — my 5K PR was yesterday at 41:16! In addition, my 1 mile PR was yesterday, too!
My previous 5K personal record was 42:50, so yesterday I cut 1 min and 34 sec from that finish time. My previous fastest mile was 13:26 (during the News and Sentinel Half Marathon). My current 1 mile PR is now 13:14.
What is more impressive to me about the 1 mile speed is that lately I’ve been averaging about 14 min per mile and when I sprint it has been about 13:40 to 13:50.
Yes, I’m pretty excited!
UPDATE: According to the race website, my finish time yesterday was 39:37 with an average pace of 12:49. I’m not sure how they got that since according to my watch, my fastest mile was 13:14. (320)
