My Last 5km Run for 2010

"In cooperation with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Bayanihang Bayan Legacy Project, we can act and contribute in our own little way to stop the effects of climate change. The Ipo Watershed in Sitio Ipo, Norzagaray, Bulacan has been targeted as 30% of Ipo’s 6,600 hectares is in need of re-forestation. We can help by replanting, and we can be helped by the local “Dumagat” community who live in the Ipo area to replant the forests. One hectare of land can be planted with 1,000 tree seedlings 3 meters apart. We can make a difference now"

My friends and I will be joining this event.  I am a bit sad as it might be my last 5k run for the year.  I really enjoyed this distance as it is short and focus is more on speed.  Originally my goal is to get a sub-20 but my training calendar won't allow me to do so.  Starting next week I'd be preparing for my 10k run which means I'd be hitting 10, 15, and 21k races in order to improve my endurance

I am hoping that I'd be able to beat my PR (personal record) this Sunday.  Two more practice runs left for the week.  And still thinking which routine that I'd do to maximize my training days (or whatever is left of it).  I intend to do another 11km endurance run and a 30 minutes tempo or interval run.  I know it won't probably make much of a difference but I am really hoping that I'd be able to set my personal best to 25 mins (5min/km pace).  I don't want to regret the effort that I will give on my last (hopefully not) 5km run

Keep running and don't forget to smile
