Today's Workout: 5.25 mile easy run, about 3/5ths uphill
Tomorrow's Workout: 8 mile run, no slower than 8:20 pace
Thought: "As if you could kill time without injuring eternity." ~Henry David Thoreau
Today I ran one of my favorite runs and it felt great. It's not my favorite because it's flat because a large portion is uphill. It's a favorite because it's beautiful, and that's exactly what I needed today. I left my stopwatch at home and just ran and needless to say, it felt great. I'm excited about my long run tomorrow but am unsure how fast I should run it. I'd like to run 8:00 miles for my race next weekend. My schedule says to run at my projected half marathon pace + 20 seconds, but I'm tempted to run it quicker than that because I'd actually like to run the race a little quicker and I figure it's better to train for a little under your projected goal. If I just run the race at a 7:59 pace, I'll be the happiest girl this side of the Mississippi. I'm thinking I'm going to take off the 20 seconds tomorrow and shoot for an 8:00 pace. Any suggestions? Criticisms?
