After-Work 3x IKEA 5K Speed Runs (25:09, 27:57, 28:25:59), 1x with Hannah (28:25:53)
After work, I got out at Tempelhof, took a one-kilometer warm-up run to the IKEA starting line, then in a still quite warm evening ran a 25:09. When will I finally get down into the low 24s again? In any case, my second run was a half-way respectable 27:57, then when Hannah joined me for my third 5K, I had a running rabbit to chase for the duration of the five kilometers, finally catching her within 200 meters of the finish line, and passing her, only to be passed again at the end to lose the race by 6/100ths of a seconds.
We really are perfectly matched in this competition, very fun. I would never run this fast on my third round if I wasn't trying to beat her, and she ran within 49 seconds of her fastest time today.
