Funny how your body can get conditioned? No it's really pretty amazing! Today I did a short work-out with about 2.2 miles at MP. 40 minutes total, 4.19 treadmiles. Amazing how I felt I could hold the pace forever! I wonder how my plans will play out Saturday?
I have been reluctant to talk about my plans because I tend to chicken out at the last minute.....it takes an act of congress to get me to race! Truly it's not being afraid it's just I don't want to get up early on my only sleep in day of the week!
But actually I have a certain amount of trepidation due to the fact that all my running has been treadmill and I'm going to race a 25K!
Funny though....I really believe I will race well. I think I will have to deal with some pain in my feet, ankles, and butt but who doesn't deal with some kind of pain during a race?
I am looking at this race as a "tune-up" race. I want to do a sort of progression run, too. My objective is of course to finish...however I think I ought to try to run as close to MP overall. So I will run this with a race mentality. My goals are uncertain because of a lack of history. If I can break 2:30 I will be very happy.
The race is called "Run with the Wind". I think last year there were less than 100 participants so it is a small race yet it appears to be very well organized. We are supposed to run a point to point course with the wind behind us....that would be nice:)
Well wish me luck...I will take tomorrow off and enjoy this mini-taper! Peace!
So we call this season fall...well it fell! Nearly all the leaves are down and you can see much deeper into the woods. Time stops for no...
So I am cutting down by about 25% this week. My old body is creaky and sore but still in one piece! I managed a 4.2 miler on the wonde...
I ran 10 miles today averaging 9:41's. I feel like I am peaking and my training has been going well. I just need to hold this leve...
One thing you can't stop....time! That's one reason I love running. The time spent running always has rewards. Instead of sit...
