"I Just Felt Like Running" Virtual 5k Report

Another Sunday, another race….and what a difference a week makes! 
Last Sunday I was slogging through snowy conditions at the Hyannis 10k with my hubs J and a couple thousand other crazy dedicated runners! Today, it was a muggy 55 degrees and it was just me and the road for a virtual 5k — A big thanks to Detroit Runner for sponsoring the “I Just Felt Like Running” virtual 5k!
I loved being able to run in just a t-shirt and capris again. The weather really drew people out this morning, I saw lots of other runners and walkers and everyone seemed in a good mood and eager to smile and say hi. Made the run all the more enjoyable!
I had been on a mini break this week, trying to give my knee a little rest before diving into my half marathon training, so I didn’t really have any specific goals for this run. I just wanted to keep a nice steady pace and to keep my left knee relatively happy.  Well, check and check. I finished 3.11 miles in 34:32 and according to my Garmin I hung solidly around 11:06/mile. Best of all the left knee felt fine! 
Great way to start a Sunday!
