Fit Fab and Lean in 2013 Virtual 5k…sorta

26 Feb

Yesterday I completed some speedwork and also crossed off race #4 of my 13 in 2013 goal!

The plan was to do a few 1/2 mile intervals. My splits were:

Mile 1 – 14:39 (warm up)
Mile 1-1.5 – 5:46
Mile 1.5-2 – 7:00 (recover)
Mile 2-2.5 – 5:55
Mile 2.5-3 – 7:10 (recover)
Mile 3-4 – 13:37 (cool down)

Total time for the four miles was 54:10.

I felt really really great during this run. The speedwork felt tough but easier than it felt last week when I did some. Hopefully that means my body is adjusting 🙂

I felt so good that I decided to use this race as my Fit, Fab and Lean in 2013 Virtual 5k.

fitfablean2013virutal5kI was originally going to use this mornings slow, easy 3 miler, but since I felt so great during my run yesterday, I wanted to use that instead. That is something that is so great about virtual races – a lot of added flexibility! My 5k split was 40:32, which isn’t a great 5k time overall, but I’m pretty happy with how my speedy intervals went.

    Nice job with the speedwork. I love to hear runners say the run felt “so great!” And really your 5k time isn’t bad — if you felt good during the run and enjoyed it, the time, no matter what the numbers say, was great!
