In the past three weeks, I’ve run three consecutive 5K’s on three consecutive Saturday’s. These were prescheudled races that I kept on the calendar despite the fact that I’m actually shifting to marathon training and mileage building. I did keep 80+ miles per week during this period and my 5K results were - 18:53, 17:44, and 18:48.

I enjoyed the races, but I’m ready to get back to traditional Marathon training.
