4.25 miles! I still managed an average 8:41/mile pace. I'm getting pretty comfortable with this approximate pace (okay, comfortable might not be the best word, but consistent when I run hard!) I probably need some more speed work if I want to become competitive in my age group in races. We're starting with 5K. I have a history with that distance (high school cross country!), but in general, I've always been more competitive the longer the distance (was best at 5K and worst at 400 meters). So I plan on entering longer races in the future, once I feel good about my pace for those distances. Half marathon by next year for sure!
