So, I run a 29 minute 5k and immediately stop running. I haven't had a solid run for a while.
I ran a 33 minute 5k today. The difference was the sunshine and 75 degree weather. I am not built for heat. I wear my winter coat on the inside and don't care much for hot weather.
The cold on the morning of my first 5k didn't bug me, but the sun on my back just killed me this afternoon.
I ran the first mile easily and felt that I had a good pace. But, the heat got to me on the second and third mile. My insides baked and chose to rebel against their master, me.
I tried to run as much as I could, but obviously it was not enough.
I need to get a running partner that forces me to keep pace. Me being a foot taller than my wife eliminates her as a candidate.
I need a slightly fat, tall runner to push me. Oh well.
