I've entered a 5k race
Some of you may have spotted I've added a new event to my list for 2008, the Gill Pimblott memorial 5k, yes I have entered a running event!!! Now I have done two 5k's before, about 5 years ago, both race for life events. I think I was close to 30mins on both of them, maybe just under on one and just over on the other. So what should I aim for this time? Since I am not sure of the terrain I don't know what is a sensible aim but whatever I run will be a PB since I have no idea what time I ran the other two in really. I was think I might aim for 27'30" but then this is running sub 9 min/miles a pace I have never managed! A quick look at my sportstracks shows that 9'30" min/miles might be a more realistic aim - still hard though. That would mean a time of 29'41", so I think I'll aim for breaking 30minutes.
