5k Training

My fastest 5k in 2015 was 27:30. Today’s 13:50 average mile is better than a few weeks ago but I’m shooting for more like a 13:00 average by the end of the month. I think my new goal for the moment is to cut off 10 minutes of time. That would put me at 35 […]

Feet felt light today. Legs didn’t hurt and my feet felt good finally in my Xero shoes. Picked the perfect path to get it done without running in a circle. My face is so pink in that picture and while I don’t exactly look happy today was a good workout! Gonna try for a workout […]
