I wish it wasn't raining tonight....but on the upside it got me out of running, right?
That's me....always looking on the sunny bright side of things!
I went to "official" speedwork on Tuesday. We ran 3 x 1200 intervals followed by a 400. Of course I was last each and every interval but that won't stop me from going back next week. I think the 400 might have been a little much as I've been having some pain in my right shin and thigh, but nothing some rest, ice, and a cold beer won't cure. Oh, and no more 400's for a while. The Mercer coach was there to give us some advice and suggested that we stick with the longer intervals since most of are training for upcoming marathons.
Yikes. I'm running a marathon in 4 whole weeks. Can you believe it? I'm not so nervous yet....but I'm sure the nerves will set in soon. We've got 20 on the schedule this week which will be my last long run before the taper starts. Of course, our 20 doesn't hold a candle to Ultra Girl's 40 miles she's running this weekend!!!!!
I may try and get 5 miles in tomorrow with Downtown D, if the rain subsides...otherwise it will be back to the dreadmill....
