Great morning for a race in New Orleans, about 60 degrees at the start and little wind. I wanted to run this sub 6:00 pace and got just under that pace, but my pacing was a little too quick during the first 5k and hung on my best for the final 5k.
Mile splits were 5:48, 5:52, 5:55, 6:00, 6:01, 6:01, 5:57 estimate for final .2.
This one felt really good as it was a significant improvement since the 10k PR in Phoenix in early February. The speedwork has clearly paid off. Going to let loose a bit today post run in NOLA then two weeks of easy running before Boston.
