Ran and won the #VinetoWine5k as a workout this evening! 90 degrees, super hot and sunny, borderline dangerous heat so I ran the first half a bit harder and kind of cruised it in (not worth passing out!). For the first mile and a half, I thought the man behind me was a girl, so I actually tried, haha, and was around 5:45/mi. Then I realized this was just a guy, and decided to back off a good bit since this was going to just serve as a little speed work anyhow. Really really hot. Pretty much instantly got a headache after I finished and my husband forced me to chug some water before the cool down (which was actually much more enjoyable and shady with some scenic VA mountains!) Happy my first race as a married woman was a W! Stopped at the gas station on the drive back and literally bought four cold drinks because they just all looked so good and refreshing. I will be spending some quality time near some A/C this evening! Really untapered for this one--had some more serious efforts this week including a HIIT class that I sub taught yesterday PM. Looking forward to more summer racing!
