Good morning! I'm getting ready this morning for the River Ramble 5K and wanted to post a bit on what's been up lately and what I expect for today.
I've spent the past month slowly working on muscle imbalances and flexibility. I haven't run long or fast or even on hills at all. I'm being patient and working on this first so that in the future, when I train for a longer race, I don't get injured in the middle of training, take a month to recover, and then poop out in the middle of said race because I'm undertrained. So I'm not expecting to set any speed records today.
That said, I'm going to go out and push hard and run as hard as I can. The past couple of races, while I felt that I did well (Only two races ago I set my 5K PR), I finished feeling like I could have pushed harder. So, today's goal to to go out and give it everything that I have. Let's do this!
