I’m Racing Saturday!!!!
Saturday is going to be my first 5k in well over a year and a half. I don’t sign up for 5k’s for a reason;, they are hard and they are expensive compared to how many miles you get for the price.

I have been wanting to do the Airport 5k for a few years now. The first year I tried to sign up it was sold out and I didn’t registered on time and last year I has my first triathlon to finish J
My training is certainly not up to par for a 5k this weekend. Ever since Gasparilla where I busted my butt for 30+ miles I have been worn out both mentally and physically. During the Sarasota Half I walked 9 of those miles and was miserable. I had to take a mental and physical break from running. I am almost ready to get on a normal training plan for the next season.
Since Gasparilla I have been adding strength training and the last two weeks I have been going to Orange Theory Fitness where I have been getting about 2.5 miles or so with a run or two thrown in.
My current PR is a 29:03 and I have no intention of getting close to that this weekend.
If I can run sub 30, great!
If I can rub a sub 10 pace, great!
If I can finish, great!
What are your plans for this weekend? Any run races coming up?
Good Luck to all those racing St. Anthony’s Triathlon J
