As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, this will be my first 5 mile race. I’m optimistic about my performance. 5 miles just seems like a really comfortable distance for some reason. Long enough to be a challenge, but not so long that I need to commit to a ton of time for training, or feel like I want to die during the race.
As is customary, I’ve decided to set out some goals for the race. Of course, since this is my first 5 miler, I don’t have a really solid idea of what is realistic or reasonable, so I’m just going pretty basic.
- Don’t get injured
- Only walk while drinking water
- Finish strong
And that’s it. Really. Nothing earth shattering. This is my first race in months and my longest run since my last 5 mile training run in mid-March (which was also my longest run since November). I’m not expecting any miracles. I’m just hoping for a fun run and hopefully some nice, springy weather. And a maple creemee after 😀
