Putting it to bed

After several weeks of prep work  and one failed attempt in the mile PR I hit the goal.  Knowing I run faster the day after a run I waited until the afternoon to take a shot.

We got to the track I did a few strides to warm up, probably not enough to be truly ready. Then I got ready to go and the sky unleashed a heavy rainfall.  With that I set off in motion.  The first split was 1:20 followed up with another two more almost on point. 

In the end I closed out the run with a total time of 5:21. Beating my PR by seven seconds. All that matters to me is that I get a bit faster each year in May. 

I encourage everyone to take that try each year. I enjoy the feel of going all out against my own PR.
