Getting Ready For California…

December 3, 2014

I went out for my trial run workout… 7 miles total with 2 at race pace. So the 1st 3 miles were a 7:34, 7:23 & 7:16. My 2 tempo miles were a 5:53 (way too fast) and a 5:59 (still fast). The 2nd mile felt better but I can go 11 seconds slower in my race. Now that I just wrote that down, I am now thinking… Crap I only get to go 11 seconds slower. :/ 🙂 Oh good times. We shall see. The last 2 miles were a 6:31 and a 6:52 for a recovery. It was a good run. The rest of the day was hectic, busy… Ok normal. I had 3 extra kids (that I watch on Wednesdays) today that I dragged around with me. 🙂 They were good. I did have a couple of visitors today. Beth and Rachelle… You 2 are amazing and thanks for the treats!

A 1 1/2 mile warmup… Then 60 sec fast, 30 sec recovery, 30 sec fast, 60 sec recovery. They did that for 18 minutes. After they finished off with a 2 1/2 mile cool down.

I was able to get everything packed, cleaned, and ready for this weekend. Now I’m here, lying in bed, writing in my “journal”. It feels good to lie down and relax. Corom just got home… He will now began his packing. :/ 🙂 I’m going to bed.
