I have a race this Saturday! It’s a 5k. I haven’t run a competitive 5k in over a year. It was the race pictured here, and it was May of 2012. I have been running longer distance races since then, so I need your advice. How do I now all of the sudden, find “fast” again? It’s been a long time since I ran sub 7 minute pace. I just finished a sub 8 5k training run, and that felt difficult.
Any advice for this born again 5k virgin?
