My average pace for my five mile run was 9:29 today.
We practically had a traffic jam of runners and walkers in our neighborhood this morning. There were three others out there with me and I hope the number grows. I like the friendly company.
My race day strategy for Saturday's 5K is to run at an 8:15 pace for the first 1 1/2-2 miles and then to pick up the pace if I can. My pace at my last 5K was 8:19. Hopefully, I'll finish strong, this time, by starting out at a slower pace. If I get a chance today, I'll look around online and in my running books for 5K race day advice.
Strength-building: dumbbell squats, seated rowing, bench press, curls, tricep kickbacks. (3 sets of each) I was able to increase the weight this morning. Weight training works!
Crunches: 100 (4 sets of 25)
V-frame: 1 minute
Plank Pose: 2 minutes
We have our flag flying and I'm wearing my red flag t-shirt. It's a great day to say a prayer for those who serve our country. Happy Flag Day, America!
