Tuesday Workouts: 3.25 miles (3 mile run in 28:40)… ?
I really need to update my Garmin! I didn’t get home from work until almost 6 and decided to do a quick 3 miler around the neighborhood. I started in the spot that must get no satellites for my Garmin and my first mile was really off. I know this particular route very well and know exactly where my Garmin should beep for 1 mile. It didn’t beep for another 30 seconds and I knew I was running faster than a 9:43 pace.
I’m signing up for the Nittany Valley Half-Marathon on December 4th. I did this race last year and it is tough! Just take a look at the hill descriptions above that are on the website. I feel really motivated after the great 5 mile race from this past weekend and would like to do another 1/2 marathon to get rid of the bad feelings from the Hershey 1/2.
This is the plan I came up with to get me ready for this next half marathon. This is my last week with a Wednesday marching band rehearsal at night, so if I don’t get that run in I will be okay. Also… I FINISHED MY GRAD CLASS SUNDAY NIGHT!! I am so happy to get a break until the middle of January! The 5k race during week 6 is the local Turkey Trot I will run Thanksgiving morning. Colby also asked me to run another 5k race that will be the weekend before that. Three races in two weeks :) I haven’t ran a 5k since May 2010 and I am really looking forward to pushing myself.
Are you running any races in November/December? Are you looking forward to cold weather running? I am!! I actually love running when it is cold!
