Hi guys, I’m a senior in HS and just curious how much can I look to improve on my 5k as I’ve been recruited by a good bit of schools and need to go a lil faster to get a scholarship. I have a 5k XC PR of 17:55 on a relatively smooth course just a few small hills and tight turns but mostly flat.
Recently I did a 6 mile tempo run my coach asked me to go from 6:15-6:00, but I ended up averaging 6:02 with a 5:49 last mile and it felt pretty smooth despite it being a gravel loop with 1 big hill and some gradual inclines. I hit the hill 3 times.
What do you all think I could possibly run by the end of my season. I am a girl btw and last track season ran 4:59 for mile and 10:36 for 3200.
