I signed up for the Bucks County 5K series -- seven 5K's in four months. I also signed up for the brain cancer 5K in DC that I do every year. I figured that between them, I should be able to accomplish my goal to run a complete 5K.
With five of my eight spring 5Ks in the books, let's recap.
Race 1....run/walk intervals....time 37:04
Race 2....intervals, but running more...time 36:25
Race 3...intervals, running more but still not the whole thing...time 36:22
Race 4...the second of three consecutive weekends, planned to walk it but couldn't stop myself, running but still with some walking...time 35:18
Race 5 in DC...I knew it was a completely flat course...I challenged myself to run the whole thing and to come in under 35:00. I not only ran the whole thing, but finished in 33:31!
My next goal is a 10K.
