SSG 10k Training Log: It's Race Week!
We're in the home stretch now! The Sunflower State Games Governor's Cup 10k is this Friday night - my first 10k ever! Thanks to everyone for voicing their support along the way - all my blog and chat friends are great! Also, a big thanks to Tony Estes of Fitness in Training for sharing his advice and letting me pass it along to all of you. I'm pretty confident in making the distance, but I'm not sure what my time will be. As someone pointed out, since I've never run a 10k before, whatever I do will be a personal best! My conservative goal is 55 minutes - that's nine-minute miles, and I certainly think I'm capable of that. Beyond that, we'll see! If any of you are thinking about joining in, you can register on-site at Hummer Park the night of the race from 5:30 to 6:30 pm - racetime is 7pm. You don't even have to do a 10k - there is also a 5k option. Don't want to run at all? Come on down for the Athlete's Festival and torchlighting. Music and games start at 6 pm, with the torch ceremony set for 6:30 pm, all leading up to your chance to cheer on the runners at 7! It's been fun sharing my progress with all of you, and I'll keep you posted on how it goes!
