I was talking to someone about my heart problems today and it reminded me that I haven't taken my resting heart rate in ages: 49 sitting at my desk, nothing remarkable but for years I was in the 60-70s even in the morning.

Total Distance

14 second post apocalypse PR. Fastest 5k since Flat as a Pancake 2011 (when I ran 16:23 in the freaking snow).

Goal was just to break 17. My plan was to be very agressive and then just hang on. There was a group of people who went through 200 in 39 and I just tried to hang with them: 79.85 at 400m. The group that I was with then sped up. In the past I might have let them go but I consciously surged to stay with themL 77.94 (2:37.79). On the third lap my legs started to burn and I knew I couldn't keep up the pace but I didn't let myself lose contact 78.87 (3:56.66).

On the one hand, I knew that I had gone out too fast, but on the other hand I was confident that I could hang on for a sub 17. Lap 4 was the first over 80 (80.22) to come through at 5:16.88, and then an 80.56 got me to 6:37.44 through 2k. Here the pack that I had been running with fell apart and I started to struggle. After an 83.76 (8:01.2 through 2400), I got passed by a couple guys and just tried to hang on. Managed an 82.68 (9:23.88) to stay only a few seconds behind my 3k pace from last week. 10:46.83 through 3200 after an 82.95. Here I relaxed a little because I felt confident in the sub 17. I missed my split at 3600 but 4k was 13:34.97, meaning that I was 1 second ahead of pace with 1k to go. Ran 83.00 then 81.17 then 36.12. Felt totally spent afterwards.

I was totally spent afterwards. Aerobically this felt ok, but my legs were tired the whole time. I still feel there's more in there but I may not have another shot on the track this year.

Next week = 1500

These meets have a crazy amount of competition in them compared to a typical road race. There were 5 or 6 guys sub 16 in this race, I believe. Also there was an elite mile won in 3:59 (2nd place 4:00.01).
