I've been struggling with runner's knee but I thought I would run this race anyway because I figured I would PR. I did.
5:38, 5:41, 5:50, 5:50, 5:48, 5:47, 1:10
I was in in like 20th for the first mile then moved up to 3rd very rapidly. Stayed there by myself until mile 4 when I got passed. I hung on to the guy until about 800meters to go when I finally lost contact. Happy that I did the race and came away with a 14second PR.
Knee didn't hurt at all during the race (dopamine I guess) then afterwards my calves were killing me (due to stupidly wearing my rockets). I also felt nauseous at the finish line, as is tradition after PRing. The nausea plus destroyed calves meant I didn't do any cooldown so I had no chance to see what my knee felt like.
