Happy Run: Fort Bonifacio, Taguig 25 January

11th place, women's category
great weather! well-organized race.
i felt i ran well. good steady pace. but after the halfway mark, i felt a bit "discouraged" and had to really push myself. is that what you call hitting a wall? i'm worried now about stepping up to 10k. running 5k is definitely not a breeze for me. is this normal?

if you're a new runner, 28 minutes for a 5k is pretty decent(i think)

thanks, anon. i used to run in high school. ran on-off as cross-training for badminton, maybe 5 years ago. had to stop due to a patella injury. just took up the sport again last november. i'm thankful for the nike running clinic. the coaches are really very serious and helpful. and it's for free! haha.
