What does this mean?

I have run six 5K races since April 7th. Even though the courses and conditions have varied considerably my times have remained constant within a 15 second range. On four of the six I got 22:42. I start every race with an “I’m going to do better this time” attitude, but then the same old time.

Does anybody have a suggestion on how I can break the spell?

I think you need to vary your races. Take some time off racing and do some type of training that you rarely do.

Perhaps you should go to a race and pace someone with a goal slightly different than yours.

Maybe you should attack the race with a completely different strategy.

Good thoughts.
I'm sure that mental preparation is more to blame than my physical training. I had very slow times in two two mile races Tuesday. I may also be needing some rest.
