Well, I won't be running a very fast 5K next week. I tried running today like I was in a race (it just isn't the same when you are by yourself). I wanted to see what I could reasonably set as a 5K goal. And after today... I'm going to say that if I get under 27 minutes, I will be proud of myself. I'm so flipping slow!
And you would think that maybe this would motivate me to start doing speed work... but no. No it won't.
