"When I got too tired to run anymore I just pretended I wasnt tired and kept running anyway" - dd, age 7
Also how long ago was your 5K PR and how did that effort feel ?? Im guesing it was a while back and youve improved your running pace a fair amount since then.
Oddly enough it is mostly dh ...he is very supportive of my running but he feels that if he is going to stay home with the kids while I get up ungodly early and drive forever (I live in the boonies) to race, it should at LEAST be a 10K. I have a 10K scheduled near the end of the year that is probably a 90 minute drive to get there and he keeps saying "ok, for a HM, but for a 10K?" I saw another thread where people had a $/mile entry fee limit, dh has a mile driven/mile run limit I think!
MTA: can you tell I have had caffeine today? blah...blah..blah chitter chatter.
Not to just jump in (she says while just jumping in), but my husband would MUCH rather I train for a 5k, then a 10k or HM, since he's home with the kids during my long runs!
PBs since age 60: 5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.
10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.
