Making strides...

Tomorrow's the 5 miler Nightcrawler race, taking place at 7:15 p.m. after work. Temperature is calling for a cool 24, so I'm happy about that. I want to use this race to work some things out, to see what kind of race pace I can hold. I'm hoping for 4:20 Ks for a sub 35 minute race. As I said before, I am really not a 5K or 10K racer, so I don't have any glorious forecasts for how I can do...

That said, I have been running consistently over the spring and since my last race (10K), the mileage has been steady and rising. Today, I did a recovery 4 miles with 6X100 strides, which i'll be doing a lot under the Pfitz plan.

The six 100 metres went by fast, but they do take a lot out of you, making the recovery run in between necessary. I concentrated on just fast running, near sprint, but kept a relaxed form.
