Track + 5k =

5_30_13post

First 5k (on the track) in the books, unfortunately there aren’t official results up. Not like there needs to be, I mean the whole no one cares part still hasn’t sunk in…apparently. My tribe mate and friend Jordan, did a pretty baller 400m after only doing two track workouts and a handful of days out actually running. Pretty impressive and not advisable, but it is a work in progress.

So still UNofficial results:
Jackie 19:05 – 5k
Jordan 64 – 400m

Also just so YOU know when I signed up for the women’s 5k, at a projected 19:30 the only others running it had a projected 17:30pace (and there were two). That means these women were at least 2MINS faster than I could ever hope to run. Also OF the grand total of 2 women I was about to race, ONE lovely lady went to the olympic trials in the 10k.

You are most likely like, “Oh, yeah 2 mins no big deal” but 2 mins on a track when you are running all alone – ya get lapped and that is not pleasant  So signing up for a race where you KNOW you’ll BE LAPPED by two women, for everyone to see ..was a bit of a hangup. But I DID do it.

YEAH, I STILL signed up for that.

So, if you think you are scared to sign up for road race 5k where you’ll just be in the middle of the pack. You dam well should, if not for you, for me and my pride. That is now bruised – only kidding.

This week ahhh ummm. I am not sure what I will race, possibly get my butt kicked in the 1500m or 3000k. Feel free to give me your feedback.

Ps:I did have a pacer which really, really helped!! (Thanks Justin)
