5K St. Pattys Day Race

Yesterday, I kicked off spring with my first race of the year down in Somerville.  I finished at 21:30 - a good 40 seconds off of last year's time and over a minute off my best for that race.  Not great - but not bad all things considered.  Once again my back kinda hurt during the race - that really does slow me down.  But I was also having breathing issues.  Also, my gps watch decided to do some weird cool-down count down right as the race started - so i didn't get good mileage.  I'd say I ran about 6:40, 7:05 and 7:10.  Just estimating.  So not the best - but the prize this year is the mile race - so I'll have to get to doing some speed work.  Should be a fun 10 weeks.
