I'm a bit concerned, as I'm running a 5k tomorrow afternoon, but I took advantage of the packet pickup at a running store (at the shopping center next door to my apartment complex, who knew?) to buy a foam roller. I was already doing some massaging with my hands, but upping the pressure with body weight on the roller - wow! So, so, tight.
|Randomly freaked out by my garmin the other day.|
My current 5k PR is 38:55 (average pace 12:32), from a race about six weeks ago. Since then, my default pace when starting a run, if I don't think about it too much, has tended around 11:00 - 11:30. I don't usually keep up that pace for three miles! But it doesn't feel super fast, so I might be able to do it in a race setting.
It'd be ok goal: 37:59
It'd be awesome goal: 35:00
