This weekend I am going to run a 5K to try to get a base time for my goal 5K in the fall. I have not run a 5K in a year and a half so I really need an idea of how fast I can run a 5K. I am hoping to run a fast 5K in the fall to improve my speed (in hopes of a sub 2:00 half). I have no idea where to even start with speed-work, but thankfully I am a subscriber to Runner's World.
My summer training plans are to keep my running going (especially building a good long-run base), and to complete lots of cross-training in the pool to try and beat the heat!
My fall training plans are to train for my sub 2:00 half-marathon finish. I will be attempting speed-work (ugh) and of course- lots of miles (yea)!
This fall I am going to attempt to run a speedy 5K. I have been focusing on distance for a long time, and I am excited to see how fast I can run when I actually train for speed.
I am officially registered for the Kiawah Half-Marathon in December. I am super excited about this because I am sure that the seven months I have to train for this are going to go well and I will finally have a sub 2:00 finish!
Race recap tomorrow for the Diva's Half-Marathon in Myrtle Beach!
