Last group run

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.

12.3.13

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

  1. Yay for three miles! Nothing wrong with a bit of walking and, as you say, speed can come later. The main thing is that you did three miles – and with walking, that’s a pretty good pace!
    All the best for Saturday – can’t wait to hear all about it. 🙂

  2. Well done on the 3 miles, Good luck for Saturday please take time to enjoy the experience it is something to be proud of. Try to have a race day strategy and stick too it regardless of others and the adrenaline it is best to go out with a walk/run approach and then see if you have something more in the last 500m.
