One Week Before 5K

On Saturday, I will be participating in a 5K race, my first since high school. I am not sure what to expect since I have not focused on improving my pace over shorter distances (no speed intervals either).

I keep saying that I'll try to switch things up by running 3 miles per day rather than doing 5+ miles every-other-day, but, when I am out there, I have a hard time justifying the shorter distances. Strange. I continue to average more than 20 miles per week, with at least one 10+ miler over the weekend.

I did not set out to run a fast half marathon today, but managed to keep under 8 minutes per mile for 9 miles and finished in under 1:50. My heart rate only averaged 150 beats per minute (considerably less than what my heart averaged during the Chesebro Half Marathon)!
