Patty lined up for a 5k a few weeks after her goal half marathon in an attempt for a 5k PR. The elusive PR didn’t come, but we did learn a few things about how to prepare for a 5k PR run.
1. Warm up properly. Patty tweeted and said she got the race in time to warm up. Victory.
2. Don’t start at the back. Not everyone should be in the first few rows of a race. I understand that. The opposite is also true; not everyone deserves to be in the last few rows.
4. Run smooth and avoid the stops and starts.
What are your keys to running a PR 5k on the road?
