My First Official Race Of The Year (5k)

Posted: May 17, 2016 in Uncategorized

So, I had what I “officially” call my first race of the season this Saturday.  I finished a super flat 5k in 20:30.

That is about 50 seconds faster than last year, but I wanted to reach my goal of under 20 minutes for a 5k.

Back to the drawing board.

I am running the NYC Wall St Run this Thursday and then after that race, I have about 3 months to go under 20 minutes for a 5k.

So far I have been consistently hitting 2 miles on pace, it is the last mile where I am starting to bonk.  That tells me that I am close and just a couple extra hard weeks of training and I should hit it.

Thursday’s race is only 3 miles and my goal is to go under 20.  It should be close.

Overall, my running season has been off to a decent start, but I am not satisfied until I go under 20 minutes for a 5k.

Hopefully I reach it soon.
