Well...guess I donated $15 bucks to the Ozark track team. I clean forgot we had company coming over last night! Two couples who are probably our best friends! I cooked out and we had a blast! I knew I'd get to bed late, but not past midnight. So long story shot, I didn't make the race and I'd already paid! Arrgh!
So, no race, finally up by 8:45am!, what to do? I had some fun! I made it out the door by 10 am and felt really good! Figures! I decided I'd try to hold a 9:30 per mile base pace and throw in some Fartleks.
I split time between "W" South and North, still hilly!
Here's the totals-5.8 miles/ 52:34/ 9:03's-10:11, 8:39, 8:32, 9:04, 9:05, 8:45....
I was surprised how good I felt on this run, wishing I could've raced. Sandy is encouraging me to race soon but it's not possible until the 29th.
There is a tough 10K in Springfield called "The Hot-n- Hilly" which is perfect for me! So I will try not to double book.
I have to be careful and not let running rule my life! It has a tendency to take priority and that's not right when it comes to time with family and friends, but to tell the truth I was stressed! I wanted to race...whaaaa. I will take tomorrow off so I totaled 46.41 miles this week. That's a bunch for me. Next week is a recovery week! I can't decide what percent to reduce...any suggestions? I know one thing...the heel will be happy! Have a great Sunday! Peace!
