1. I have a crazy plan for this weekend. First, it involves this....
2. Which I'll wear Saturday for.....
smartest bunny I know, and since she thinks it's reasonable, I'm going to give it a shot. I have been doing a decent amount of speed work, and it's all been going pretty well.
(My current *real* PR is 27:47 from July 2012; the Vet's Day race would have been a PR, but since it was not anywhere close to a real distance, I'm not counting it).
My super lofty, man-I-hope-I-don't-puke goal: 25:45 (8:18 pace)
Goal B is to just PR: 8:55ish pace
I have no goal C. If I fail, I quit.
JK, my C goal, as it always is in a 5k, is don't puke or die.
#1 will be running, as well, and I tried to tell her it would be HILARIOUS to toe the line like it's a cross country race....
3. Anyway, after Saturday's fun, I plan to try my hand at....
Run, Eat, Repeat, and now I'm going to! Yay, free.
So after I got that bib, I thought..... man, it would be kiiiind of fun to PR TWICE IN ONE WEEKEND.
Wouldn't that be FUN???
So, my goals for Sunday are.....
A: 2:05, 9:32 pace. I honestly don't know that I'm in the right place for a 2:05 right now, because I've been doing shorter, faster runs in prep for the 5k. BUT WHO KNOWS!
B: PR. My current PR is 2:11 (9:59 pace) from PCRF back in May 2012. That seems like BILLIONS OF EONS AGO. This wouldn't take too much effort, I don't think, but I have no idea how I'd feel on a hilly course the day after maybe running a 5k hard. So we'll see.
C: If I get out there and a PR is just not in the cards, I'll run it easy and enjoy a long run with a friend. There are no losers here, so I'm sure it's going to be a swell day.
Really, it's just been soooooo long since I've raced anything, I'm excited to be back out there and am really looking forward to all of it.
