Inaugural South Florida Fair 5K: A Good Ending to 2011 and Welcome 2012!!
As all of you know, I've been struggling with my races since I was diagnosed with the asthma and given medication plus a rescue inhaler. My times have gone slower and slower and I have not been able to perform as I had in the Summer. So, when I saw this race in between the WPB Marathon and the Disney Goofy Challenge, I knew it was the perfect time to do some quality racing and give it my all. My intention was not to PR but rather to see how fast could I go with the asthma and how my performance will be affected by it. I had run three 5Ks since being diagnosed with asthma, two of them in the 80s and 90% humidity and this one. My times prior to today were: 27:16 and 27:36, respectively, both in September, two weeks after being diagnosed with the asthma and without the right medication for me. PR pre asthma was 24:57 (Garmin). I have to say I think this was a success, in part. I, however, did a lot of things wrong. What I Did Wrong : Started Out Too Fast - Aft
