I came up with this idea to work towards a 6:30 pace for my 5k. This was my first attempt. I was familiar with this course and knew that it was a flat, fast course. Plus, I would have some good competition at this race.
Here I am at one point in the race. What I notice about this picture is that I lost my form. I was heal striking at this point…..ugh! I have been working hard on my form and when I am training, I am able to keep my form. But, I notice that when I race, I lose my form.
Here I am crossing the finish line.
And, this is so typical of me……What’s my time? Did I meet my goal? Well, unfortunately, I did not meet my goal, but I was closer to it (6:42 pace). No worries, there’s another chance in a few weeks! After all, if I hit my goal after 1 race, it wouldn’t have been much of a challenge.
