Shake, Rattle & Run 5K

This last Saturday, I figured I hadn’t done a race in a while and needed to get out a do something fun. So I made a last minute decision to do the Shake, Rattle & Run 5K. This is a local race organized by the St. Anthony North Health Foundation held the Orchard Town center, a great Mall in Westminster.

It ended up being a pretty warm day for Oct but still great for a running race. The race went well given that I hadn’t really tapered at all and I am also kinda nursing an injury. But everything held up pretty well and I was able to race hard. My stomach felt a little quesy towards the end of the race but I don’t think it affected the results. Must be the intensity because I haven’t been doing any speed workouts and I’m not used to the intensity.

Anyways, I ended up 13th overall with a time of 19:08. That’s a 6:10 minute/mile pace. Which is a PR for me at the 5K (3.1M) distance. The training is really going well right now. I think I’m on the right path with SpinalRunning.

Although, according to the GPS it might’ve been an even fater time if the course was actually a 5K. The GPS indicates that the course was actually 3.25 miles and my actual pace was 5:52 minute/mile.  At that pace, my 5K time would’ve been 18:10. But who knows, maybe the GPS is wrong.
