Yes folks this weekend I will put on my ELF costume (ironic yes?) with silly socks from Janna and lace up the Brooks for a 5K jaunt around T-Town!! The Santa Runs Tacoma has a great turnout in alpha order Alma, Amy, Chelsea, Janna, Jill, Kadie, Kerrie and kiddos... Heidi and Tammy will be volunteering and cheering.. hopefully weather depending Muscle Man and the Little Studs will also make an appearance. GOOD TIMES!!
- WHAT IS MY GOAL?
Last night I hit the treadmill for a warmup 5K to see how my 11 days Post Marathon legs felt. I started slow, I have not done speedwork at all and I don't want to get injured. I knew I wanted to get a sub 27 minute 5K. I had Top Chef and the Little Studs to keep me company. I felt HEAVY!! That extra 10 pounds I have gained bounces and I DON'T LIKE IT!! Think I need to start my New Years Diet early. As I warmed up I felt good, HOT but good. Time to get a fan to go with the Treadmill. By the end I was going sub 7 minute pace ending with a 26:15 5K.. Not too shabby.
I am going to pulse my friends to see what their plans are.. then I will either pace someone to a PR and HAVE FUN!! Or try for about 7:30 Average pace.. going for a personal PR right now is not realistic.
