Tuesday: 6m tempo (1m warm up, 4m @ 7:47/pace, 1m cooldown) + 20 min legs
Let’s talk. I need to take the pressure off training for a fast half or a BQ time marathon. I want this year to be amazing and different and FUN. As much as I want to be on a strict running schedule, hitting paces & meeting goals, getting there will be easier if I don’t put as much pressure on myself by focusing on one race.
This is why i haven’t signed up for an “A” race yet. I’m not sure if it will be a marathon or a fast half or both! I’m just going with the flow and will sign up for a race when i feel good about a specific distance.
This is also why i’m doing the Spartan Beast OCR (obstacle course race) in May & why I just signed up for a crazy hard leg of Ragnar DC this September. 18.1 tough miles!
Having multiple racing goals and a few different types of races on the calendar should keep running life fun & interesting to say the least! (also–if you remember running a Ragnar has been a long term goal of mine!)
Another one of my goals is to attend a few local group running meet-ups and be more active and social in the running community. I’m ready to branch out a little and turn running from a solo sport, to somewhat of a social thing.
Last thing! i had to share what you would see if you watched me blog. There’s me:
and then there’s this…it’s why i can never get a blog up in a timely matter.. she’s so distracting! hehehe
