5k Benchmark

I need a fairly flat, not too long, speedy run today. Thursdays are often hill-days for me, but I’ll get plenty of hills in the Edworthy XC 8k race on Saturday.

I need something speedy, to tell my body it can go faster than my 10k PR of 1:00:28 (Brooks Women’s Run, Sept 19/o4). Plus 5 km shouldn’t tire me out before Saturday’s XC.

It might be even more than 28 seconds stuck to my butt at the Jingle Bell race this month, if I keep on dipping into the kid’s halloween stash.

Here I go, out the door, into the nasty Chinook wind…
