Even though I've been doing speed work once a week, my running lately has been more focused on laid-back, easy runs, and building up mileage. It's been ages since I tried to run at a fast pace and hold it for any length of time. Yesterday I did mile repeats, but I know I can't hold that pace for 3.1 miles. I suppose I'll just have to go out and wing it, like always, but I do wish I had a better idea of what I'm capable of.
Actually, that's part of the whole reason behind running this race- so that I can find out what I'm capable of!
Fortunately, unless I trip and break something, there's a high probability that this race will go better than my last one, so that's something, at least. Plus, this is an all-women event for a good cause, so there's that.
Now, I'm off to the gym. Someone remind me why I thought an hour long training session would be a good idea today?
Yeah, that's what I thought!
