Well, I stopped trying to be first a long time ago. Although I am still going to run this thing as fast as I can, if I can set a new PB for 5K (not that I probably will with temperatures predicted to be around 100degF, but you never know) I will be very happy, and half dead probably. Good job I do not have work on Friday.
So, tonight is all about prep.
1.5 miles (2 1/2K) on the treadmill at a sprint, I am thinking 7.5mph – 8 min miles plus some strength and core work – need to work on those areas a bit.
