I am one week from completing my first ever 5K.
(I shouldn't be intimidated about 3.1 miles after having done a run/walk marathon...but I am!)
It's been a while since I ran 3.1 miles straight...and I'm not talking the fat man shuffle run either!
I set a goal to finish the 5K in under an 11:00 min/mile pace. (I think, I THINK I am on target to do that!)
Today I ran. I started tracking after my warm up with a nifty new device. :)
(More on that later...)
So I know you are all DYING to know how I did right....
You are all DYING to know if I'll be ready for next Saturday, right?
Today I went 2.52 miles of straight running in 25:00 minutes.
My average pace: 9:56 min/mile. SERIOUSLY!?
My splits were...
Mile 1: 9:58
Mile 2: 9:52
Last 0.52 miles: 10:03 (the last part of my run was KILLER...all up hill!)
So. In a week from today I have to be ready to add on another 0.6 miles to that run.....and I'm praying I can come in under 35 minutes.
(But I'm praying even harder that I can RUN the whole thing without stopping.....)
