Let's Run FASTER!
I'm going a little off topic for today's Fit Dish. Mostly because I somehow missed the topic until this morning. :-/
I wanted to just pop in this morning to talk about speed work.
As you may (or may not) know, one my goals for 2015 (and 2014 and 2013) is to get a sub-25:00 5k. By some miracle, I ran a 26:33 5k back on Feb 1st during the Big Game 5k.
That crazy race made my goal somehow more realistic. I mean, I didn't even feel like I was trying that hard, and had the most difficult time accepting my time after I'd finished.
Even though it seems actually do-able now, I know I've got a lot of work to do to shave off another 1:30+ from my best time.
There are a lot of things that go into running faster - speed work (obvs), but also stretching, strength training, and I love this!
So, I combed through lots of articles that I'd already pinned and created a new board strictly about running faster.
Follow Clarinda's board Run FASTER on Pinterest.
Now, I've just pinned these articles. The next step is to actually READ them. :-)
And then, of course, APPLY them. ;-)
But I feel like this first step was important, so stay tuned for more on which workouts and tips I end up trying and which work and don't seem to work for me.
Now, since today's actual topic isn't too crazy, let me just finish with 5 peeps I'd love to run with one day! AKA my 5 favorite bloggers/runners.
Laura from Mommy, Run Fast
Jill (our Fit Dish host)
Katie from From Ice Cream to Marathon I've actually run with her before! An entire marathon.
Tracy from Instagram
Lea from Running with Ollie
What are you favorite ways to increase your speed? Any advice for me or articles I should pin/read?
If you could run with anyone, who would you choose?
