5k weekend is here and I am AMPED! Seriously, I don't think I've ever been so pumped for a 5k, but this is my race and I am ready to fly! After last Saturday's RNR Half workout, I had Sunday off completely, which was nice. Monday, I was back in the pool and weightroom for a normal workout. On Tuesday, I had my favorite race-week workout, which covers almost the 5k distance in the speed section:
|Kara, I can only dream to follow in your footsteps!|
|Resemblance is uncanny, right?|
And Friday, I had a 5 mile run, followed by 5 x 300 at 67-68 seconds a piece. It was so hot today - while that wasn't a long workout by any means, I was just drenched by the time I got to the track! By the 300s, albeit short, were at roughly 6:00/mile pace, so I am hoping that when Sunday comes along, the pace that I am aiming to run (6:25) won't seem as much of a sprint. We'll see. I met with Sarah on Wednesday (we were co-presenting at a history function), and she said to just take it out hard in the first mile and hang on until the end!
I did my 20 minute shake out today with 6 sprints thrown in - getting ready for my finish kick.
I slept in this morning, and it was nice not to have an alarm to wake up to. I do have some work to do today, but I am also going to relax. Even going out to see 21 Jump Street, which looks like it will be funny. Anyways, light and easy today, and hard and fast tomorrow!
