Dallas Corporate 5K

I have not run a 5K on the road in five months.  I have been training and racing on the trails for about two years.  I have done four road races and all 5Ks this being my latest.  I do 5Ks for speed work and I want to run at least one under 27 minutes.  A group of trail runners decided to do a road race for fun and the rain has forced us off the trails.  I had made the decision to go for the sub 27 but I was still recovering from the 25K.  My feet were still sore and I also had leg soreness after putting in many miles on hills to get ready for another race that was rained out.  The Dallas Corporate 5K was on a Thursday night which is usually my off day.  I put all these factors in my failure to get under 27 minutes.  My time of 27:25 was slightly disappointing.  The course was flat and fast but it was very warm and humid.  I thought it would be colder and I was overdressed with a heavy long sleeve shirt.  I was running well and at the midway point my time was 13:12.  My race fell apart from that point.  I lost my legs and could not keep up the pace.  I had a   great time hanging out with the running crew.  e4b969cf-6f3b-4b98-8aa8-77cf9d586aff.jpgPost race pictureFB_IMG_1556851755063.jpgPost race meal and drinksFB_IMG_1556851690892.jpgPre race selfieFB_IMG_1556855786914.jpgPost race group pic

I am getting back to training for trails but the rain has forced me to do some more road work.
