Hopefully my last treadmill run

…of the season!

It is starting to warm up here in The ‘Ville, so I am anticipating lots of outdoor activity at least for the next week or so. Woo hoo!

But today, I had a final fling with the treadmill. I decided to do a practice 5K, just to make sure I remembered the distance.

Distance: 3.1 miles / 5 kilometers

Time: 33:08

Pace: 10:40/mile

This was a bit slow for me but once again, I was on the treadmill and my legs (but esp. glutes!) are still pretty sore from that Jackie Warner workout on Tuesday. For real, I need to do that one again once the soreness improves!

I am really excited about the race on Saturday and I can’t wait to see how I do. I’m thinking about going without a watch this time because that is how I ran my very first 5K and it was fun to just sort of “feel out” my pace and not beat myself up about time.

What about you? Do you time yourself during races? Or do you just relax and enjoy the flow?
