Just a Sample

Do these legs make me look fast?   IMG_0862

Notice my inability to touch my toes. I should really work on that.

 

Whew! I got in a 4.0 mile run this morning before heading into work. I only have a couple of runs left before this Sunday’s Half! The heat and humidity were a little more noticeable this morning than I would have liked, but otherwise, a great run!

The entire run, I couldn’t help but feel excited about the race. This year has felt like a bit of a failure on the racing front. I’ve only raced twice (the Disney marathon in January and the Miracles Miles 15k in September) and I wasn’t very happy after either race. It’s been a tough year for me running-wise, but I feel extra pumped for this race. I feel like I excel at this distance more than shorter or longer, so it gives me a boost of confidence.

 

I ran the first 2.0 miles at an easy pace, around 9:45 min/mile. For the second half of the run, I aimed to keep my pace under a 9:00 min/mile. I am thinking about my half marathon goals, and decided to give my legs a little sample of what Sunday will be like.

 

Speaking of samples… look what Kashi sent me! I sent away for this freebie months ago, and it finally arrived.

I had it as a pre-run snack. It was a little less soft than I anticipated, but still had a good strawberry flavor.

Coming soon… my goals for this weekend’s half-marathon!
