This morning I ran in my third 5K. It was through downtown Statesboro, which was fun. I really just wanted to run it to see how much my time has improved since the last 5K I did, about four weeks ago. Since that time, I have doubled my mileage, from three miles at a time, to six and hoped that I would see improvements in my time because of it.
My first 5K, March 29, 2008, I ran in 30:57.
My second 5K, Oct. 28th, 2008, I ran in 29:28.
My third 5K, Nov. 22, 2008 (this morning), I ran in 27:34.
My goal for this race was to run it in under 29 minutes, so I was elated to surpass that goal. I am looking forward to the Savannah River Bridge 10K Run on December 6th.
This book has done wonders for my running, in just the few weeks I have been using it. I highly recommend it.
My goal is to work up to running a 5K in 24 minutes. And of course, THE MARATHON in March!
