Forgot my shoes yesterday (DER!) and am CRAZY busy with meetings today so I most likely won't be running...so this post is a mishmash of topics.
STATS for 5/18:
Running the day after my 1/2 Marathon, hills, tight quads, warm day, and running in my neighborhood.
I ran the Monday after my 1/2 Marathon, hoping to see what my legs would do after running to NEAR failure the day before....I believe it was Aron who offered the tip that it is a good idea to run on tired legs, I took the advice. All in all the run was AWESOME!! OK so these legs do have more in them, check!!
Reflecting on the race I have mentally prepared myself to no longer go on the easy level trail runs....yes folks I NEED more hills in my life. So my 5 miler was nearly all hills....all in preparation for this... Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Marathon on June 27th....
THANKFULLY the wonderful race people changed the course and the last 6 miles are pretty darn LEVEL....YIPPEE!!! I am not sure exactly what my pace will be...but tentatively I am slated for the BQ Coral 3:40min. Could be a Pie in the Sky Goal...but I am not shy to TRY.. Rookie qualifies for Boston first time out, sounds like a good headline to me. May re-evaluate after my 20 miler...will keep you posted.
TRAINING and PRACTICE...I am anxiously anticipating my belt from Nathan, hoping it will come this week before my LONG run. For LONG runs I have tried a few items from Gu's to Chews, my favorite Gu is the PLAIN...LOL...I am that exciting. I am a BIG fan of various types of chews (that may not be the correct term in running land)....I was TOTALLY bummed because my stash ran out before my race, I will not let that happen again. I went to REI and picked up a few items to try for fun..so look for a product report next week for the following items....
I am sure these items have been reviewed before....but not by me...LOL.. Happy Wednesday.. OFF TO MEETINGS MEETINGS MEETINGS...
