Had a goal to break it in 2015, never hit it. Tried again this year and hit 20:48 on the track. Then I got distracted by cycling as the weather got nice, and havenít run at all since due to the recovery cost of running impacting cycling training.

On track to hit 5k miles on the bike this year, in about 380-400 hours of effort or so. Satisfied to be back in consistent shape for the first time in 3-4 years.
I've always enjoyed a 5k and training for one vs. anything longer. I was always a sprinter in high school (800m about my max) and while I may do a 10k as a training run, I always choose 5k for a race.

I am similar to you in times. Cant seem to break it.

My daughter hit 19s in her cross country meet and of course she let me know. lol. But to see girls in HS hit 16s and guys hit 15 or maybe 14 is insane to me.

That's awesome! That's the next distance on my list. I am considering the Salt Flat 100 Mile race in Salt Lake City. Wanted to do it last year but got injured.

This was no run but an exhausting march, 200km in 4 days, you have each day time between 5AM and 5PM to achieve the distance on four different trails. March take place since more than 100 times in Nijmegen, Netherlands and is a very big event. Did it twice to get the ribbon with crown and had trained month before the start.
I remember some guys with cancer or other partly war injured marchers, participants from around the world, best after show party ever.

you guys do any hip flexor exercises or specific stretching? I am having major patella tendon issues and my PT says its my hips, not my knee (cause and effect). I usually use a rubber band at home to do the exercise, but today used that goofy machine at the gym that I thought only girls used. hahaha. but it burns and really helps.

Hour run today, longest run of my life to be honest. Beautiful day so just kept going. Clocked 7.7miles, had a lot more in me, but wife wanted me home haha. Starting running again last Monday, progressing pretty quick back towards where I was. Work and other things got in the way unfortunately. But I'm trying to get back after it'

stretch before and after every run,
I use stretches from Meb Keflezighi's book, stretches I see figure skaters do and stretches I see on Seth DeMoor channel.

I do hip flexor loosening up exercises - where you stand and lean against something and sweep one leg at a time thru a 100 degree (or whatever) arc side to side for a ten rep then and also do the weeping motion back and forth ten times each leg. Also do a lot of squat stretching.

But I think my constantly switching and alternating neutral shoes is very beneficial to knees, ankles and hips.

I cannot agree more with hip flexors. I didn't and my knees paid for it.
