>Look What I Can Do!>Sub 25 minute 5k - Woohoo
Now that was a bath...
Roads were made for journeys...
I think that tomorrow I will up the distance and slow the pace again with the aim of running longer distances throughout January and February with some speed improvement worked in to March.
Great idea. If I were you, I'd pick a few 5K's in the April-June timeframe. Take the next couple of months to run easy mileage with occasional strides. Then in March add some tempos/tempo intervals. Run the first of the spring 5K's off of just mileage and tempos, then add a few 3-5K pace workouts on sprinkled in on the weeks you are not racing--aiming to peak for a 5K in June. You could still run your race in January as it is long enough to be a good workout for your goals. Just my .02, whatever you do, best wishes and congrats on the progress in such a short span!

One of my goals for 2007 was to run 5km in under 25 minutes but I guess I will have to make that my goal for 2006 as today I ran 5K in 24:36 at a 7:56 pace! That's three minutes faster than two days ago!
