I have a 5K twilight race for life booked for a week on Saturday (today being Thurs) and have been sick for the past week. I did W7R1 today, so there is no way I'm going to have finished the runs in time, but I do think I can run for 30 minutes and I'm going to try my best to lengthen the stride or run a bit faster, as I'd like to do it in a reasonable time. Actually, the only reason I want to do it in a good time is because I don't think I can run for a longer time, so I'm aiming to run 5K in 30 minutes. I think running with a crowd (and my energetic 12 year old daughter, if she doesn't mind slowing down for me) will help to carry me along.
The real objective is to just run 5K in whatever time it takes.
There, I've said it all in public, so now I have to make it happen
