I Need A Plan

The past few weeks without having a race to train for is making me nuts.

I have been getting to the gym, which is great, but I hate feeling so aimless.

I decided to look back on a few of my 2012 goals. One that has been haunting me is to run a sub-30 5K. My last 5K was a disaster. I did just about everything wrong from starting out too fast to attempting to run at a pace that was much too fast. What I want now is redemption. I have the time to focus only on 5K’s and I want that sub-30.

The June issue of Runner’s World has an article called Time For A Fast 5-K. The article focuses on three goals a sub-30, sub-25, and a sub-20 5K. It contains a five-week training plan and lots of information on speed work. The article could not have come at a better time.

The Lakeland Runner’s Club hosts a series of races called the Watermelon Series. It is four races June 2, June 23, July 21, and August 18. If you register ahead of time, you can do all four races for $40. It’s a great deal and will give me four shots to reach my goal.

Do you have a goal that’s haunting you?

  1. Several goals: sub-35 5k, sub-60 5 mile, sub-2:50:00 half. My original half goal for my last race was 3:05:00, but came in at 2:51:15. Woohoo yes, but makes it harder to come up with a goal when you are about two races ahead of where you thought you would be! I know, I know…what a problem to have. The problem is it kinda freaked me out running that fast and now I’m kinda unsure about half marathon goals…
