So I was dodding around on nikerunning.com and noticed that there was a challenge for the fastest 5K. People are encouraged to join this challenge and enter their details from now until the 31st of March to compete for the fastest time. Someone’s already ran their 5K and logged a time of 15 minutes!
Punchline: I’ve joined. Ha!
Seriously though, I have no desire to beat the 15 min (nor the cability), but this “challenge” is super motivating! Right now I think I can run a 5K in about 40 minutes (which is a good 10 minutes slower than my pace last year), but I’m going to push for 30 min anyway. And I’ve decided to get you all in on it so that I don’t back out.
Results will be posted later this evening. Wish me luck!
