    Glad I ran this by you guys... I thought it may have negatively affected my 10K to race the 5K all out. Now I see it as helpful. My last 5K effort was on 4/6 so I can see now that going all out may give me a better idea of what my legs can do for the 10K. I'm psyched for Sunday now!

    PRs:   5K- 28:16 (5/5/13)      10K- 1:00:13 (10/27/13)    4M- 41:43 (9/7/13)   15K- 1:34:25  (8/17/13)    10M- 1:56:30 (4/6/14)     HM- 2:20:16 (4/13/14)

      you can listen to the experienced people with good advice or listen to me.

       

      mile 1 - warm up

      mile 2 - run fast

      mile 3 - cool down

      coast the last .1

       

      find the free beer and take some pictures Smile

       

      I highlighted the important part.  Smile

      Short term goal: 17:59 5K

      Mid term goal:  2:54:59 marathon

      Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life.  (I started running at age 45).

                  Will the beer drinking be speedwork?

                    haha.... I will have to channel my college days, but I can probably manage a race effort chug. In the very least a tempo chug.
