Two Races, One Time Or Am I Getting Slower?

Do you ever feel like you aren’t getting faster?

Every summer when the humidity is high and the heat unrelenting (I do live in Florida), I run a race series, The Watermelon 5K Series, hosted by the Lakeland Runner’s Club. There are four 5K’s throughout the summer and it is an amazing deal ($30 for four races.) You can read about race’s one and two here.

Last week was race number three and I ran it in exactly the same times as race number three. I ran 31:15 gun time and 30:56 clock time. On the bright side, at least I am not losing fitness but it seems odd to run two races in the same time. My Garmin matched my clock time exactly, so at least I am improving somewhere.

My finishing picture came out nice. (Although, my arms always looks strange in any pictures I see of myself running. I wonder if I need to work on my form or if my arms are normal?)

A great race as always put on by the Lakeland Runner’s Club and I cannot wait for race number four.

    • You’re so right. It’s funny that the past few years I only race 5k’s in the summer. If I really want to inch my PR down, I probably should run one in January.
