|I love working backwards so I can see how my paces will slowly get faster throughout training.|
couple years ago while sick...that was really rough. It was also the race that was supposed to be my first full, but luckily wasn't.
|A bunch of my friends saw I had signed up for this and thought I was running the full. Nooo...one full in December is enough for me!|
There's also a 15k I ran two years ago, but I can't find any information on it...If they decide to have the race again, I'll definitely sign up.
I love that the paces on my plan look really doable. I know I can meet them if I'm diligent. I just hope when race day comes, I can keep the pace I need for my goal. (I'll share more about my A, B, and C goals when I'm further into training.) This is my second marathon, but it's the first I'm planning to really race. The first one was all about finishing! I'd like to really train with a race-plan in mind this time.
(Even as I'm looking at my plan now, I feel really confident, but I seem to be forgetting that even four miles is awful right now because of the humidity. But I know I'll get on track!)
|We were dripping after this, and a little slap-happy. Matt's plan for Chattajack called for 60 minutes in HR zone 1, so we kept it really easy, which was totally fine by me!|
|Nice and grassy after our first run together.|
|The medal design was released this week...I haven't earned a medal in months! I'm looking forward to adding this one to my wall.|
I officially start training next week. I can't wait!
What does your fall race schedule look like?
Do you like running tune-up races before your goal race?
Is there a race you try to run every year?
