How 5K races have changed for me over the years

Workout notes: wore sleeves; it was that cool. Couldn’t make myself go in for track work; I stayed outside.

I was 27:59 leaving the neighborhood, 54:30 at Heading/Western, 1:38 to Bradley Park, 40:43 for the Cornstalk out and back and 12:15 for the final 1.03 (52:58 for the final hilly 4). This was a decent walk, but I probably needed a couple of more 12:xx miles thrown in.


I’ve been running public 3 mile/5K races since 1981 and, of course my times have slowed. And the scenery has changed with my times:

Sub 20 minute era


22 minutes


24 minutes


26 minutes


28 minutes


Yes, I had a run slower than 28 minutes this year (had to walk; hopefully no more of these).
