Tonight was our last group run before the 5K on Saturday. This run was not time based rather the goal was to run 3 miles no matter how long it took. This is the first time I’ve run three miles in almost a year…wow! I had to stop for 4 walk breaks but I finished the 3 miles in 38:54. Not bad, now I have a goal to try to beat on Saturday.
I looked back over my runs the last 12 weeks and my pace seems to be getting slower…not exactly what I had in mind; I think it’s because I’m taking more walk breaks than I used to so of course my average pace is going to be slower. I guess I can always work on speed once I get the distance down.
The weather forecast for the 5K is looking promising – low 50’s with a slight chance of rain. At least it’s not going to be freezing…yay! ttfn
