So as you should know if you are a regular reader of this blog, I recently ran my first 5k and I am looking forward to my next one. I am starting to think about pushing myself to finish with a little better time. I ran my first one in 36 minutes and 9 seconds, and during my afternoon runs I am starting to really push myelf to run at a faster pace. Well today I ran my regular 2.5 mile training run in 23min 20sec, or at about a 9min 20sec per mile pace.
That is fast enough that I am starting to think doing my next 5k in less than 30 minutes might be realistic!
