The company I work for in Keystone is doing a fun run 5k this coming Saturday and I signed up for it because it will be super fun even though it is on pavement. So, here I am 5 days away and I haven’t done any short distance speed work, nor have I done any running on pavement. So today I ran 3 miles as fast as I could on pavement around my neighborhood. Well, I definitely ran faster than I have in many years! I beat my PR for 1 mile and I kicked my own butt. I only stopped twice to walk for 15 seconds to get a drink of water. Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow and beat my time… or maybe I’ll go on a nice enjoyable trail run… I like the latter.
