I can relate to the late-night eating...only it is due to DH...he loves to eat cheese at night which is my downfall.

race report:

weather, sunny, -5C

A MAJOR goal for me is to run a sub 30:00 5K. I felt great and finished very strong in the 2nd half but I ran the 1st half waaay too slow. My HRM doesn't allow me to look at the time and my HR at the same time, how do I make sure that I start fast enough but still have enough left in the tank to finish strong? Do I need another watch?

Oh yeah, I'm not THAT far from 30:00. I'm still waiting for the official times to be posted but according to my HRM it was 31:11.

I just do knee ups and hamstring curls, joint mobility for the upper body before a race, and walking to the starting line. Someone told me that I need to run a mile or so and that a 5K actually requires a longer warmup because it's such a short race you need to start fast to hit your goals (no kidding).

I've heard that, too, about running a mile before a 5k.
