Summer Time

  Wow! What a year so far. Spring came early and it seems Summer will, too. It is hot and sunny, and the ground is already drying out. I sure hope we don't keep suffering this lack of rain. I have been having to water my new trees and I would much rather they get a little rain. So today I ran nice and easy on rolling hills/2k hill rout. I only went .5 miles down 2K hill and finished with 3.8 miles. I continue to gradually increase and I still have no race goal. I would like some of your thoughts regarding this question.
  If I wanted to run a 10K race with some race specific training how long would you make the training segment? Preace!

Race specific training to me is just doing speed work. I'd do intervals (anything from 200-1200m) or mile repeats along with some tempo style runs. Google some 10k training plans and see if there are any workout ideas you like.

Race week

   So I do hope to run a 4 mile race this Saturday. I'm pretty sure I can easily break 40 minutes but 36 minutes might be a better targ...
