Personal Best 5K

April 28, 2010

I decided to go ahead and get another 5K run in before the official run on Saturday. As many of you know, I am focusing on completing a sub-30 minute 5K chip time on Saturday morning. I would consider that a huge success. I am really feeling good about where I am at because my Nike+ recorded my 5K at 29’18”! IF the Nike+ is accurate, that is my personal best by far. However, I want to make this happen on Saturday. I can imagine running into Memorial Stadium, seeing the clock and that will be where I start sprinting to the finish line. That’s what’s going to happen….I won’t have to imagine long.

I am ready for it. I think I am going to rest as far as running goes until race day. Let the legs rest up and I’ll be ready to work at it. Insanity will continue just the same…..and I think we can see why. I’ve shaved off like 3-4 minutes from my usual time.

Thanks for checking in!!

  1. Awesome run. I’m still jogging at about 10.57 per mile and I’m determined to get as close to 9 mins as I can. You are an inspiration for sure! Best of luck in your race, I’m sure you’ll do great! 🙂
