This year, I’m dedicating all my running efforts towards my fav of distances: the 5K. I ran 4 marathons over the past 2 years (loved them), but now, I’m really enjoying the lower mileage/higher speed intensity workouts. Especially now that I’ve got a great coach to push me (more on that in a different post!).
I’ve registered for 2 5Ks in the next two months, and I’m looking for at least two more in April and May. My first 5K is in a week from today, and I’m ready to RACE. Bring it on!
Next week’s goal? Sub 22. My goal (one of my 26 before 26’s) by the end of the spring? Sub 21. My ongoing goal for 2012? Break my college track 5K PR of 19:30.
I’m ready for the challenge. I’ve been putting in the effort on the track, with lifting, during tempo and longer runs on the weekend. And with many more months of training ahead of me, I don’t see why I can’t give that 19:30 a run for its money. I like goals, they keep me motivated and energized.
Know of any 5Ks in the Denver/Ft. Collins region this spring?
What’s your big running goal for 2012?
How’s the weather where you are?
Who wants to go sledding with me?!
