This is week 15 of training for the 25k run. I am feeling very good about reaching my goal of 2:10. I will be continuing longer runs and a sprint day during the week. I think the sprints have helped. My 5k average is around 7:45 per mile. Persistence and commitment have given me the edge . I ran the Irish Jig a few days ago and had a 23:22 5k. A very exciting 7:32 / mile average. I placed 38 out of 201 runners in my age group, 45-49. I will let you guess my age . One hint, I'm not 49.
