As part of my New Years resolutions to keep running after a big race, I have already picked another running goal. It’s much shorter of a distance but I really want to work on speed. So, here’s what’s next:
I’ve run this race before. I think it was last year but might have been 2007. No, it was last year because Jason was with me and we weren’t dating in April of 2007. Anyway, my goal for this is to do a sub 30 minute 5K. Preferably, sub 29 minute if I can. My fastest 5K time is 30 and some change so it’s definitely doable. This is a fun neighborhood race that ends with a festival. It’s also conveniently on the Saturday before my birthday which is when some friends and I are going out to dinner later that evening. Makes for a fun day. And, I just noticed that you get a free beer at the end. Score!
I think I am going to follow my pal Hal’s Intermediate 5K plan and just start on Week 6. I am going to take a few days off this week though so I might not run until the end of the week.
I can’t believe the weekend is over. I spent the entire day eating and sleeping. Well, not true, I did make it to Petsmart and Kroger. For dinner, I made my version of a Willy’s salad.
I used TJ’s chicken fajita mix, WF reduced fat guac, salsa and a little bit of mozzarella on some romaine lettuce. I forgot that Willy’s uses black beans. I should have put that in too. It was good though, though not as good as Willy’s.
