Today my personal best 5k pace was achieved. I took Thursday, Friday and Saturday off from running to let my left knee relax and heal. The knee has been feeling a little sore and achy over the past week.
I went out this afternoon for a 5k (3 mile) run before the thunderstorms arrived and even with my sinus infection I managed to have a great run. I wasn’t sure how things were going to go, but as I clicked the start button on my Suunto watch I had a feeling it was going to be a personal best 5k pace. My route starts by going up a slight grade and then goes flat for about .50 miles, more slight grades and then I turn at 1.5miles to complete the 3 mile loop.
Today’s shoes were my Saucony Mirage 3’s and I really enjoy running in these shoes, I suggest checking them out next time you are in need of shoes.
