59. Racing Your Best 5k Or Virtual 5k

Racing your best 5k There are many 5k races this time of year!!This can be a great opportunity for a time trial to see what type of fitness you are in. We want to make sure we train at the correct paces, so assessing your current fitness level is very important! We also want to chat about pacing and goal setting for shorter distance races so that you are able to get the most out of your fitness on race day. What is a time trial? Why is racing important? What is the best way to approach racing a 5k? How does the 5k differ from a marathon when pacing? How do you know what pace to go out in? Do you find most people run the first 800-1 mile way too fast? Should you put a speed limit on the first mile? Where should you place yourself on the starting line pack? Should you weave in and out of people? What should you feel like at 800 meters, 1 mile, 1.5 mi, 2 mile, 2.5 mi How will the weather impact your race?
