Deconstruction of Goals

Weigh-In: 219.8 lbs
5k Time: 25:30

Today I attempted to push myself a little further and see how close I could get to my sub 25 minute 5k goal. As you can see, I was able to record a 25:30. That time included 8 or 9 intervals at 5.3/7.5 then 5.3/8.0. I think if from the start I would have bumped up my lower interval time to say, 6.0 I might have been able to get under 25 minutes. I like to try to attempt to break personal records on Monday's since I'm usually fairly well rested from the weekend, so maybe I'll make this a weekly thing.

Tonight I'm FINALLY starting my lifting program with my friend who lives down the street. I'd been putting it off because I've been gutting my kitchen, tearing down walls and ceilings and so forth so i didn't want to be so sore I couldn't put my arms over my head.

The kitchen still isn't done, but the demo work is, so hopefully I can move on with my lifting. Although installing drywall on the 12 foot ceiling might be interesting with sore arms...

I think installing drywall on 12foot ceilings would be interesting with or without sore arms :). I don't envy you right now. Nice work on the smoking fast 5k. Your a bar setter Brian.

Way to go on your 5k Low, you will get it under 25:00 before you know it ;)

You realize if you keep dropping time off this 5k race you're going to end up in the negatives.

I need to get healed up so I can start running again - every time I read about you doing it pumps me up again.
