Goal of sub 20 5k (Read 13547 times)

    Now - just to get some quality miles in before finding a spring marathon.  


    5k predicts a 3:13 finish - figure if I go quality and quantity, maybe a BQ is in hopes?

       

      19:52 - even splits.  8th overall.

       Great race! Way to go.

      Current Goals: Run and stuff

        Congratulations!  Great job!

               Nice run and confidence booster. That cooler weather is nice too.

                This thread is so quiet lately.  Anyone has any more 5k planned?

                 

                I am going to run a 5k this Sun.  Hope to get sub 19:15. But with my tired legs from the Marathon training and no taper, I am not sure if it is possible. But the weather is projected to be nice and cool.  So, it will help.

                  hey - are you running the one at stanford on sunday?  i am gonna do the 10 i think.  looks like it's the same course as the homerun which is the sunday after, so this is my practice run since i suck at pacing in shorter races

                    Hi Alan,

                     

                    Yes, I am doing the 5 at Stanford this Sun.  Thought about the 10 but I will do the very flat and fast SV Turkey Trot.

                     

                    My 5k PR really should be broken, hopefully by a lot

                     

                    I think Jim is doing the 30k so we won't see him.

                      It's not looking good for me.  I wanted to sneak one in in October but it never happened.  This month I'm running 2 HM's.  I'd like to run one in December but they get harder to find in these parts at that time of the year.  It appears as though my sub 20 quest will have to wait until 2010.

                        cool - i'll see you there.  i'll probably be warming up on the stanford track starting about 40 mins before the race.

                          Nonsense.  Race day registration is available for Run For All Ages on Saturday in Wakefield.  Introduce yourself to mikeymike, then stay on his shoulder for the race.  That'll get you about a 17:30 if he hits his goal time.

                            Tempting but I must stay focused on the task at hand Sunday.  I do need to find a place to get a run in Saturday morning though.
