If anyone knows where to find bialys in Milwaukee, let me know ASAP :)
But I'll admit, my confidence in my ability to run a fast 5k right now is a bit down. In prep for the Rockford Half Marathon, I didn't do a lot of speedwork other than HM pace tempo runs. And after taking an 8 day break from running, I hit the track for 400m repeats and the workout kicked my tail.
I plan on running all out for both races, but a new PR may have to wait until later this summer or fall.
Last week I fell a bit short on miles after having to cut my speedwork short and skipping Friday's run. This week, I'll add a few more miles to get a bit closer to last cycle's peak training. The goal is to be back at 50 mpw later this month!
Afternoon: 6 mile easy pace run; 45 minutes strength training
Afternoon: 14 mile easy pace run
Afternoon: 6 mile easy pace run
Morning: 6 mile easy pace run
Afternoon: Boot camp class
Morning: Lombardi 5k Race (Plus 2 mile warm up and 3 mile cooldown)
Total: 40 miles
I think that's it for now! Anyone care to share tips for running a fast 5k race? Oh, and Happy National Running Day a day in advance :)
