Daytona saidI tried a relatively flat 5 mile course this afternoon. How depressing... 41:30.
yeah, don't we hate those reality checks..
but you also know it all comes back with a bit of consistence
corridore saidThe running forum is always pretty dismal for some reason—not too much chatter here. How about some discussion about upcoming races?
Anyone planning a race this month? If so what's the event and what's your goal time? I'm running a little Thanksgiving 5K in my town—something I've done many times in the past. My best time on the course is 18:15 in 2003, but I'm shooting for 21:45. I had a lazy summer, so we'll see.
race season is completely over here but , have to check dates, Montreal has a 5k race completely indoor within all the subway corridors ( you can go pretty much everywhere downtown without ever setting one foot outside ).
I've never tried it , but i'm game this year.
btw, 18:15 is awesome time. I never got under 18:20 , last races were 19.
but not having raced this summer either, i'm sure it'll be 20-21 also whenever i do one.
My last race was summer 2008 with a 10k at 40' , (my PR being just under 39 )
think in the Spring i might give a 1/2 marathon another go. but i don't want to experience last time's mistake again : bonking at km 18 and seeing the whole thing spiral down, hahaha. my goal of 1h30 ( which i was going to beat by almost 5 minutes ) ended up 1h35 .
But now i'm 3 years older, so i lost another 3% of VO2 max.
ah, and it's not just the running forum that's dead, most sports ones are.
but i still find the place a motivating factor for some reason.
there are some incredible achievers.
