Warmest run of the year

So far!

Our training schedule called for another 4 miles today but I was feeling a little stiff and sore from the day before. But I still wanted to take advantage of the lovely weather, in which I wore shorts and a short-sleeved t-shirt. Man, it had been too long!

So, we just ran three miles.

  • Time: 29:40
  • Distance: 3 miles
  • Avg. pace: 9:53/mile

Part of the course we ran today will be in the 10-miler I’m running on Saturday. As we ran this part, I started to get a bit nervous that I am not quite ready for the race. At least not to run it all.

But I know I can run 6-7 miles, so perhaps I can walk/run or even walk the rest. Because honestly, finishing a 10-mile race, no matter how I do it, is quite an accomplishment. I need to take Kim’s advice and stop comparing to last year, the year before, etc.

Just have fun! That’s going to be my mantra this weekend.
