I am happy with my times, not the improvement I really want to see, but I have not been adding in speedwork, and have been skimping on hills. The five miler did include hills! And my long run this weekend is hopefully going to. Well, when I say hills, I mean a bridge. Or two bridges. That's all I have in Florida!
A couple of my past runs, so I can see how I have been going. I have a 5k next weekend, so I am wanting to be prepared - I have no idea how to race a 5k! I attempted a little practice, and was happy with the result, especially as I cannot run as fast in the morning as in the evening.
That is my fastest on record so far! I did 3 miles at an 8:04 pace a while ago, but did not run that extra 0.1 to make it to the full 5k.
I am thinking of trying to go out at an 8:45ish pace, then pick it up throughout the run. Hopefully the excitement on the race will allow me to go faster! Would love to get around 25 minutes.

I'm going to attempt a treadmill workout today before work. 3 miles, and I would love to do some intervals. Let's see how fast I can go!
