Second 5K race this year: 21:43 (21:39), 4:19 pace.  2/7 in my age group.

Very hard race. Very cold weather and strong front wind at km 2 and 3. Ran with Lumi, I had hard time to keep up with her. I do not think I was ever ready to quit a race like this time. But I managed to finish it, second in my age group, and 1 minute faster than 5K a month ago. Took me 5 minutes to recover normal breathing after the race.

Second 8K race this year: 36:54 (36:51), 4:37 pace.  2/6 in my age group. Total first place combined 5K and 8K EndurRace.

The worst race ever. The heat killed me. Temp with sun was 25C.
I just did not feel the race. Had to walk 3-4 times in last 2km. My heart could not handle that any more.
Bad pacing, started too fast. The plan was 4:30 pace, I did not stick to the plan.
No pain during the race. Some light pain in ITB 2 hours after the race.
