I have a confession. I have not run a 5k in nearly 10 years. I don’t even know if it was ten years. Might have been longer. ANYWAY, I ran a 5k today and my goodness….it was hard. I thought it would be easy but try sprinting for 3 miles. It’s not really that easy. I’m so used to pacing myself for long distance races that I have no clue how to pace myself for short distances. I started out running @ 7:30-8 min/mile. That did not last very long. I ended up finishing in 25:54 (8:23 min/mile). Not the best since I was trying to break 25. I suppose I’ll have to run another one soon!
Anyone race this weekend?
How do you like the 5k distance?
