Jeff, a favorite local blogger of mine, organized a virtual 5K. Each person signs up via Jeff's blog and runs their 5K during the dates set. We then report back our results to Jeff and are entered in for various prizes that he is giving away. How cool is that? No registration fees but you still can win goodies. I'm in!
I ran my 5K this morning. My training called for 4 miles, but I was 1 mile short on yesterday's run so I upped it to 5. Since I need to run my virtual 5K I logged 5.1 miles total; 1 mile warm up at 8:25 pace, 3.1 miles at 7:30 pace and 1 mile cool down at 8:20 pace. Total time for 5.1 miles 40 minutes.
Here is Jeff's blog. http://detroitrunner.blogspot.com/ He's also training for his first marathon!!
Thanks for organizing this event Jeff!
