2.5 mile run today, preparing for my first 5k of the year Saturday, hoping the weather holds off.
Weather should be alright for Saturday morning. It's going to be a little warm for this time of year. Which race are you running? I would like to offer some advice for your run. Try not to start out to fast, the whole excitement of the start and other runners can cause this to happen. You do not need to do any carb loading for the run. Eat what you normally would tonight. Try not to eat anything within a 2 hours from the start and limit fluids before the start as well.
To those asking about the c25k programs, when I started running about a year ago, I used this program to get going again. It works great. It’s set up to have you run a 5k in about 30 minutes or a 10 minute pace. That is where I was when I finished it as well. Good luck with the race and good luck to those starting the program.
In other news about running, this weekend is the last “long run” before the LA half.
