I have come to the end of my 5K training via the 8 week Oiselle plan. Generally I did pretty well with this plan, and found that I liked running by minutes versus miles, although I would have mileage goals for the time goals in my head.
The 5K I am running is Thursday! I am really going to try to push myself to break 19:00 in this race. Last year, I ran 20:00.28 on this course. I enjoy the course - it reminds me of cross country courses from high school. I will have to be ok with making it hurt more than I usually do though!
Another exciting development is that I got in on the Oiselle running team, Volee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They have made this available twice, and really if you can make it through the technology snafus that inevitably happen when lots of people attempt to get on the same web page, and pay $100, you're in. I didn't make it through the first time so I was pumped to get through this time. My jersey has shipped, but I don't know that it will be here in time for Thursday night's race.
