The objective of this run was to do 2.5K as fast as I could to figure out a baseline. I managed to do it in 16:20, which corresponds with my 32 minute PR for a 5K. I tired myself out a bit because I thought the test started a minute earlier than it actually did so I ended up running fast and not having it count. Oh well. Close enough!
I must say, I am enjoying these runs that have a purpose. Good for Type A folk like me.
