1. 6 mile tempo

    Yesterday I had decided not to race the 5k today, because it simply wouldn’t be beneficial. I didn’t think I’d even have a workout but my coach said I should do 12 miles with 6 miles at tempo pace. I wasn’t sure how it’d go, but then I realized I did this same thing a few weeks ago so I didn’t worry about it too much. Anyway, I averaged 5:30’s so it was solid, and there were motivational quotes on the sidewalk to keep me inspired while I ran haha.

  2. Raleigh Relays

    Hopefully I’m accepted into the night 10k at Raleigh, I think that’ll give me my best shot at for hitting another national standard. I’m about 3 weeks out and just now actually getting into some 10k work rather than half marathon. I’m ready to get even more fit and simply focus on that race. The goal is to run 31:00 (a standard), so two 15:30’s back to back, but I’ve got to at least run a 31:30 to hit B standard. Anyway, I’m feeling fit and focused. I’ve just got to be patient and keep putting in the mileage.

    In case you’re wondering I’m running about 85 miles a week, which feels like a great amount. I only hit about 80 miles going into the half.

  3. Qualified for nationals this morning!

    I ran my first half marathon finishing in 1:10:42, I should also note that it was pouring and windy.

  7. I’m going to have to go sub 5:30’s for the half if I want to qualify for nationals with an A standard. I guess my first half marathon will be fun.
