Not Sure How to Approach My 5K

By Fitnessmeetsfrosting @fitnessfrosting

I will be running my first St. Patrick’s Day race tomorrow (just a 5K)!

I’m excited because I talked my parents, Kyle’s mom, and my aunt, uncle, and 2 little cousins into walking it for exercise :)

This will be my first 5K that I’m not running with anyone so I’m hoping to give it my all!

This week’s WORKOUT recap:

Sunday: 7 miles, easy pace.

Got severely dehydrated (felt like a hangover+migraine+dehydration+elephant pounding on my head). Not fun. Be smart folks.

Monday: Skipped my HIIT class because still felt a little weak.

Tuesday: 7 miles. Not easy pace, not hard pace.

Wednesday: Off

Thursday: 5K, easy pace

Friday and Saturday off because…

Sunday: RACE!

Not really sure how fast to run this one. I’ve never really raced a 5K before (by this I mean run hard and give it my all- certainly NOT competing with anyone other than myself).

I’m definitely not as fast as I have been in the past and I didn’t start doing speedwork again (after my IT band issues) until recently. I was able to comfortably run 1.19 miles at a 7:57 pace last week. Not really sure what that means though.

Any seasoned 5K runners have advice?

When was the last time you got severely dehydrated?

Do you ever “reverse” runs with food ;) ?
