On the way back my son decided to turn it into a trail run for the last half mile or so back to the house. I of course happily followed suit.
2. I saw this little guy in the middle of the road while running Wednesday morning. I tried to get him to head into the grass, but all he wanted to do was put him tail over his head and pretend I wasn't there.
I have to admit the month of easy running has felt GOOD. My body is feeling refreshed and ready for more running. I have been doing more hill training since Ragnar Northwest Passage will be hilly.
My gripe about the race this weekend... the 5k starts at 8, but the 10k doesn't start until 8:40. This makes me mad everytime I do this race. Why does the shorter race get the cooler air? Things get hot this time of year and I don't like to run hot! I suppose I could just run the 5k and get over it, but I haven't run a 10k yet this year and I want to! There aren't any other 10ks I can for awhile.
I am not going to set any big goals coming in to this run, I will probably start out around 7:10-15 pace and see where it goes from there. My PR is 44:45 at a 7:12 pace. This will be my fourth time running this 10k.
This was my first 10k back in 2011 and I ran it in 45:27. I started out too fast and paid for it.
In 2012 I ran my PR. I was in awesome shape that year, also marathon training.
I didn't run it in 2013 due to injury.
Last year I ran it with no Garmin in 45:52 on no speed training and not a lot of running.
Fine I have a goal... I want to beat last years time.
Who else is racing this weekend?
