Daily Run: The Need for Speed

Distance: 5 miles
Time: 35:35
Pace: 7:07

Well, its official. I am in better shape than I thought. I was hoping my legs would let me go farther than 5 miles today. When I looked at my watch to get my half split (out and back run), I decided I was going a bit too fast to go longer. Still, I had a stellar run. I even ran negative splits! I can't wait for my half marathon in March. I'm definitely going to go for a PR (sub 1:36).

For the rest of the year: tomorrow is an SRD and Thursday is another 5-6miles. I'm also going to officially revise my goals for 2010.

1. Run 2080 miles (or 40mpw)
2. Sub 3:45 Marathon (PR 3:54)
3. Sub 1:36 Half-Marathon (PR 1:36)
4. Sub 20 5k (PR 18:58)

All of these are personal bests for me except my 5k goal. I haven't trained for a 5k in a long time. Also, the race I'll shoot for the sub 20 is during my marathon training cycle. So I'll be focusing more on endurance then speed. But, if I'm feeling good, I might shoot for a PR. The racer in me might come out that day :)
