Good Morning Friends!
I am racing a 5k on Tuesday evening. It’s not an event I’m used to and I am wondering what your experiences are and what advice you may be willing to share.
The 5k distance is tough for me to get and maintain speed. Moreover, as my marathon race pace is about a minute per kilometre slower than my 5k race pace, I find it hard to even gauge how my 5k pace should feel. I’m very adapted to running at marathon race pace and I know instinctively how it feels. But getting a feel for how a 5k race pace is a bit of a struggle. Often I find myself going out way too fast or way too slowly. I am very much adapted to longer distances, and this is my preference. But I still would love to post a PB on Tuesday.
Help me out? What works for you? What are your stories?
Thanks everyone! Wish me luck 😃
