Today was my long run day. I ran a nice steady 11 miles in 1:37:13 which is a 8:50 pace. I honestly think it was the most comfortable 11 miles I have ever ran. I am truly enjoying the FIRST training schedule I am following. Is it really working to help me with my time, who knows but its making truly enjoy and feel comfortable with my runs which is amazing.
Two Races Next Week
Next Tuesday I am running the Tim Hortons Peachbud 10K.
I ran it last year and it is where I got my 10K PR. It was a great course but this year I did see that they had to change it a bit due to come road construction. I am hoping to beat my time this year but if I don't I am happy to get to run this race again!
Then on Friday it is Canada Day here, we get to celebrate our fabulous country! And what is the best way for a runner to celebrate.....yup run a Canada Day race! I am running the 5K Barrie Canada Day race and Marina will be running the Kids 1K.
I did run this same race last year and I blogged about how unorganized it was so I am giving them a second chance because the Barrie area by the lake is absolutely beautiful!
So two races next week, wish me luck!
