Another indoor track meet.
Tomorrow I am going to race in the 5k at the Kent Tune Up race. This will be a lot more competitive than the Case event was so of course I am a bit nervous, but after some scolding by coach for seeding myself too slow I upped the ante a bit and I am feeling confident about working hard tomorrow to hopefully improve my 5k PR.
Looking at last years results I will be lucky to place top 15 at this race so I am taking a different approach than I would at a road race. I am going into this with the mindset that I am working with the other runners to achieve a personal goal, rather than the goal of racing other women. It is very likely I'll be running in a decent size pack for much of the race which will be a new experience for me, so I'm hoping this approach will help me keep my cool before and during the race. I'll let you know how it works out!
