I’m really nervous and have a lot going on today but wanted to get some quick perspective from you guys today.
I sign up for 5K’s to enjoy them, not to race them. Well, tomorrow, that’s about to change. I’ve set a hefty PR goal of 24 minutes for a 5K and I’m getting those nerves in my stomach already. I never really race for time but I have an itch to do so and am just going to do it.
I’m going to have to keep remembering that when it feels like I can’t keep going, because I know I can. I’m a strong runner, I just rarely run for time and am hoping that the speed work I’ve been trying to do is going to pay off. If not, I’ve got the next 5K, right? Ugh, but I want this time NOW! 🙂 I went to hot/Bikram yoga (which, by the way, was one of the hardest classes I’ve done there! aghh!) last night and am taking today off in order to feel adequately rested for the race (which I never do for a 5K!).
Based on its name, I think I’ll be able to get the time I want, I mean I’ll be bolting!! The course is relatively flat, but again, if not, I’ll be OK, right???? If you want to find out if I made it tomorrow or not, just go ahead and follow me on Instagram. I’m going to become besties with my Garmin tomorrow morning at 8 am. Luck. Luck. Luck.
Any advice on speed?
What do you do when you don’t hit a PR/goal that you wanted to?
What are you doing this weekend?
P.S. Happy Freaking FRIDAY!
