Striding Through

Because a life well lived always finds the right pace

Yet another race this weekend

Fall racing season continues this week, with the Anthem Great Pumpkin 5k in Reston.  It’s basically a quick run around Reston Town Center, so it should be relatively flat and well-suited to a fast time. Whether I can run a fast time, however, depends on how well I’ve recovered from the Army Ten Miler of last weekend. For about the first three days of this week, my legs felt shot. But they seemed to be turning the corner yesterday, when I went for an easy 6.6 miles and threw in a fast finish over the last half-mile.

This may very well be my last 5k race of the fall season. Goal again will be to get to 19:00 and hopefully break it. That’s ambitious, though. The closest I have come is 19:35 so anything below that mark will be considered a success.

It will probably be cool and rainy at race time tomorrow, so that will make things interesting for sure.  I’ll be back with a race report afterwards.
