Intrepid Racers & Trainers - Feb 2 (Read 21 times)


day after day sameness

    Only one race on our calendar for this week as Vegefrog takes her streak of AG wins (2:2 so far this year!) to a local 5K. Personally, VF, I challenge you to run exactly a 22:22 since you're....you know...running for two.

     

    Feb 2 vegefrog Ashley Ridge Foxtrot 5K 5K Summerville, SC

     

    We're now two short weeks away from a big weekend of half marathons coming in mid-February. About the time in training when it's past time for laying in base miles and a good time to work on sharpening up the race pace...getting used to the feeling of running hard. If this is a goal race...now is the time to be pondering 'what's needed for me to show up fresh and ready for the 13.1mi''.

     

    Good luck, fleet feet and following winds to our weekly racer(s).

    Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

      Awwwwwwwww! 22:22 would have been awesome!

       

      BUT..I actually got a PR instead, LOL.

       

      This baby likes to win!!!!!!!!!!!! Another AG win. I actually got 2nd OA female, but it was such a small race they only gave an award for 1st OA then went onto AG awards. I'm fantastically pleased with the PR @ 11 weeks pregnant Smile

       

      That's my last "racing" 5K until after the pregnancy. I will throw in a few for fun this spring/summer, but it will be March before I do another one and I expect a month to make a pretty big difference in my running style/pace.

       

      MT I love your words of wisdom and encouragement! You should really have a blog...
