Well last week I did one thing: I ran three days a distance of 5K. One was outside in the cold. I took that relaxed. The other two were in the wellness center on a treadmill. Both of the latter I took at 24:30 and 24 minutes respectively.
So in good conditions I can do 24 minutes. But how do I do that on an outside course with uncertain temperatures? The next race is in flat North Kansas City, but on Feb. 11. Weather could be cold or hot that time of year, that time of morning.
But I ran those three times, those nine miles. I also got by cycling miles in for January. Approaching 300 for a 250 pace isn’t bad.
Now I just need to get up and actually go to the pool sometime, to get the third prong of my triathlete status back up to speed.
