2014 Sub-18 5K (Read 494 times)

    Wow, you guys.. I appreciate the background but I think I see a lot of equivocating.

     

    No, I'm not sure I know what you mean about the pot and the kettle.

    11/1 - Mendon Trail Run - 50k

      I am in.

       

      Age 33, and had only run two 5K races.  The first is 19:17 (Dec 2013) and the second is 18:21 (Mar. 2014).  Will try to run another 5K after summer training season.

        I am in.

        Come all you no-hopers, you jokers and rogues
        We're on the road to nowhere, let's find out where it goes

          Thanks.  Actually I was trying to find a local running group and/or forum.

          Tweeeked


            Progress for me tonight at a 5000m track race! My PR from a month ago (18:48) was either tied or beat by one second, official results coming later tonight. But Tweeeked, you ask, why is that progress? For the sheer fact that I ran right through that race, I answer. With tomorrow's long run I'll hit my highest weekly mileage...ever. This week also included two fairly successful workouts. So I'm thinking right now on a good day (it was quite windy on the home stretch) where I actually have a bit of a taper, I can get low-18s. With my summer of malmo training I'm hoping I'll be good to go for sub-18 in the fall. Though I'll actually be focusing on a half marathon at that point...

            2014 Goals:

            • 5k: sub-18
            • 10k: sub-38
            • Half: sub-85

              Congrats on a good race Tweeked.  Enter and race as many 5K races as you can this summer.  By the end of the summer you'll eventually hit a good day on a good course and nail the sub-18.

                Getting a little bit closer. Ran 18:16 today, which is the fastest for me this year. Actually, my second fastest 5k ever. So, thinking I still got a chance if the moon and stars align. If not, then hoping to PR this summer, which is 18:10.

                Current Goals: Run and stuff

                  17:31 today. Cooler weather really helps. I feel like I could have gone faster but mentally I am having a hard time pushing past the pain threshold.

                    Nice job, guys, and way to kill the goal huskerrunner! I don't know about everybody else, but we just had an abrupt turn into optimal racing temps here in the northeast and I'm hoping to hear some more great results. As for me, it remains a lot of trails, but I'm going to try to get in a 5k now that the stars are aligned.

                    11/1 - Mendon Trail Run - 50k

                      Great Midwestern weather last weekend and this coming weekend!  Ran 17:46 over this past weekend and hope to get one more fall 5K in to shoot for a PR (17:30).  Good luck to all running fall races!
