race day count down...
I am getting very excited and a bit nervous as my next 5k race approaches. I am running another 5k on Saturday - June 2nd. My goal is to beat my time of my last race...33 mins. and come in at 30 mins. or less...that would be so awesome!!!
I have been running outside and have improved on my speed and stamina. My last race I started the race in a sprint sort of mode and then totally lost energy and burnt out...hence the slow time I finished with :(
I am so focused this time around I think I may be overthinking it...I know now I need to start slow...maintain a good pace and then the last quarter mile or so, I need to run at a fast speed...and hopefully meet my goal. I am planning on going to the gym tomorrow and doing my strength training workout with Ehren. I hope to run at least one mile tomorrow. I will then run at least two or three on Thursday. Friday will be an easy walk day and maybe do an easy run just to keep my legs active.
I am starting to really enjoy running...I love the competitive edge it brings and I am really competitive with myself... I hope I do well and meet my goal. I will surely do daily updates that lead up to race day and the outcome. Wish me luck!!!
Does anyone have any tips for me on running a 5k ? If you do, I would love to hear from you.
Chao for now...
