Can't believe I am already tapering for the 25K. It seems like just yesterday that I signed up for the race -- oh, it was ;O) Do you ever wait to the last minute to register for a race that doesn't have a capacity limit? Guilty here.
I need some advice about where I should position myself during this race. I have been running my long runs around a 9:20 - 9:45 average and my shorter runs around 9 - 9:15. I plan on running with a pace group, I am just not sure what one I should go for.
Push myself and head out with the 9 group? What if I go out too fast and struggle at the end?
Hold off a bit and go with the 9:30 group? Speed up if I feel I can?
The old me wants to join the 10 group because that is where I am most comfortable. I consider myself a 10 minute per mile runner even though I have become just a bit faster than that....
My goal is to run the 25K in 2:25 or less. I think I am reaching a little high. But if anything, I hope to beat last years time of 2:43:35.
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend. Stay safe.
