Goals for 5k

Saturday, June 05, 2010

I have my next (second!) 5k coming up on 6/12. The first one was brutally hot and I was glad to have survived the heat, and I ran with a friend and stayed on pace with her. We are both running in this one, but I plan to run at my own pace and hope to run it at around 31 minutes. We ran the other in 33:35. I didn't love the time, but it was my first "real" race and, as I said, it was REALLY HOT!

My training runs at the 5k distance have mostly been in the mid-32 minute range but I ran just under 31 this morning. I would love to some day run it sub-30, but would be thrilled with sub-31 for this one. I ran 4 miles this morning, may do a short (2 miles), easy run with my friend tomorrow night (I don't run twodays in a row as a rule, but I want to get in a run with her and hope, hope, hope it isn't a mistake. I've promised myself to make it an easy run. Then, no more runs til an easy 3 on Wednesday and off again Thursday and Friday to have fresh legs for the race!

    You should be able to do sub 30 given the pace of your training runs. Easy 5Ks runs for me are in the 32-35 minute range.
