A free 5K

As part of my six-plus mile run yesterday, I did a 5K tempo run. Time: 24:03. That's faster than all but three 5Ks I've ever done in a race. I'm not quite sure what to make of that, but I'm happy with it. It took me so long to break 8 minutes a mile in a race, and now I can do it in a training run and not feel wiped out the rest of the day or sore. It's an awesome feeling to have. Only 44 days and 40 minutes to go ...
