Fast 5K

Run like a bunny.

On January 15 a few of us from CrossFit Cedar City went and ran a 5k in St. George. I haven’t run a 5k for a long time. I haven’t really been running at all in fact. I did the Redrock Relay in September and that was three runs, about 5, 5, and 2.5 miles I think. So I was interested to see how I would do with mostly Crossfit training. I ran a 24:29, which I think is a personal best. What seemed the most amazing to me is that I ran under 8 minute miles. I averaged 7:54 minute miles. Knuckles to Crossfit!

It was also helpful to be running with fast friends. I kept up with a few of them for the first k and then at least tried to keep them in sight. I did get passed by a woman pushing a stroller of triplets!! She was sprinting. I think she came in the top three overall for women. A couple of women with at least a decade or two on me also whipped my hiney. I want to be like them when I grow up. I need to get the cool compression knee high socks. Maybe that would make me even faster.
