In less than six days I suppose to run 5k and PB it in under 30 minutes.
I know I can do it (I did run this distance in 30:11 at the Bread and Honey race).
I’m feeling a bit queasy because there is little to no opportunity for runs this week.
Now, if one of these gets rained out, then the treadmill will be hit, for sure
Wednesday: Dinner out with mat leave friends
Thursday: Dinner out with awesome gals met through work
Friday: No run as the race is the next day at 8am
What’s a gal to do?
I guess I can run at lunch like Marlene, or before work.
There are pros and cons to both.
Pros: I’ll get the runs in.
Cons (lunch): Sweat + lack of shower means I’ll have to do a crazy sponge bath job in the accessible bathroom post run, of course Marlene proves it can be done.
Cons (before work): 4:45am wake up.
Well, seeing it written out like that, there is no contest. I’m off to map a 5/6k route from the office.
I have run twice since I last wrote: 5k in the humidity on a stomach full of grilled steak a-top mixed greens with roasted red and yellow Hungarian peppers, blue cheese and walnuts. This was not a good run. I also did 5k in 34:29 on the treadmill while watching the Jays suck-it against the Angels on Saturday afternoon. That 34:29 is scaring me. How I’m going to shave 4:29 off a 5k run is beyond me. I must really kick it up during races!
Pre-race post to come Friday. I think I’m putting too much pressure on myself, but maybe it’ll be a good thing
