Luckily we had pretty good running weather today. It was a little nippy out, but not to the point where it hurt my lungs to take in deep gulps of air. My only complaint is that my hands got a little numb, but that's barely even worth noting. I also had my iPod, which I always run faster with.
As for my time... I got an 18:13. I was a little disappointed, that's only 13 seconds off from last year's time. Especially considering my 5k time reductions as compared to last year, I was definitely counting on getting into the 17's. Oh well, maybe I'm being too hard on myself. Yesterday I made the moronic mistake of using the leg press, so my quad's were burning today the whole way around. I'm sure that affected my time - especially considering that I felt like I could have been going faster at certain points based on my heart rate and breathing, but my legs were holding me back. Oh well, it still isn't a horrible time I suppose.
