Walk and Run

The weather is amazing! Just beautiful! Sandy and I went for a 2+mile walk together and then I jumped the treadmill for an hour giving me 6.22 more miles. I finished the week with 42+ miles! That's a bunch for me!
  Next week is race week! HM next Saturday! I have established some goals:
    Ultimate: 1:50.00
    Challenging: 1:52:30
    Acceptable: 155:00
I plan on a mile warm up before the race and then settling in at HM pace-8:27's or so....I am going to try! This is really an important race for me. If I can break below 1:55 that will give me a load of confidence going into the Marathon.
  I am working on my last five weeks training schedule. I need a 22 miler in there somewhere. I plan on a mini taper next week, then a recovery period after the HM...not too long nor too short...then the 22 miler...before you know it I will be tapering!
  Hope all is well with you! Peace!!!

Reptile pile!

     It may be Fall but the snakes are very active! Saw a very large Copperhead....smashed by a car! Saw a pigmy Rattler and a green snake....
