Chomping at the Bit

I have been feeling pretty pumped in my training runs the last couple days, because of my 5k disappointment. I have been having to mentally restrain myself from running faster (ALWAYS a good feeling). I had been avoiding morning runs, since I am not a morning person, but I have enjoyed them immensely the last couple days... the weather has been nice, I have been motivated, and there aren't many other people up to ruin your experience.

I have been trying to find the perfect workouts for me, but it is eluding me. To make up for it, I end up running hard, trying to make up for my knowledge of workouts. I am hoping to work with a coach who can help me figure out how to maximize my strengths, and determine the weaknesses that I need to focus on. I also want to look into other ways to improve my running, like weights, particular stretches, plyometrics, etc.

My near term goal is to get back down to where I was before for 5k time (sub-18). I will post my longer term goals when I achieve that, as I want to be singularly minded till I get back to where I was a few months ago!!!
