Hey Jonesy, Thanks for the encouragement. I hope you're right. During my last speed workout I wanted to feel the leg turnover that I once remembered and I think it's still there. BTW, I turned 37 on the 19th, so I'm catching up to you.
Anyway, ran a 5k race yesterday morning. My finish time was 20:04. Ughh! I'm finding out that I don't know how to race a 5k given my level of fitness. My first mile was in 5:47 and the 2 mile was 12:16. The rest was just "hang on." It was extremely humid, but still I think that's no excuse. Even though the course was flat as can be, I think I went out way too fast.
Hope all is well and look forward to your critique and advice. Long distance in xc wasn't my strong point, however, because of that I'm motivated to want to get better and excel at 5k+ because it seems there's a 5K race somewhere every weekend.
Yes, I'm in the KC metro area. I'll continue to look into the KC Smoke Track Club. It seems they're a group for elite runners looking to extend their abilities beyond the university level. It might be there's a place for me as I continue to improve.
Best Regards and hope you're improving as well!!
