Marathon training starts May 8. I am concentrating on some shorter track workouts until then to hopefully build some speed. I would love to get back to where I once was.....Yesterday was definitely my "quickest" workout in awhile! I ran with the girls I coach and we did 6x300 I did this workout last week and I had much more success this time through! In red is what I ran last time...... 1. 300- 1:07 (6:00/mile pace) (1:09) 2. 300- 1:04 (5:44/mile pace) (1:08) 3. 300- 1:02 (5:33/mile pace) (1:07) 4. 300- 1:03 (5:38/mile pace) (1:07) 5. 300- 1:05 (5:49/mile pace) (1:09) 6. 300- 1:06 (5:55/mile pace) (1:10) Maybe it was the new running shorts..... Tomorrow will be a busy day at the track as we host the Waite-Molnar Track Invitational! Go Blue Devils!!! and Sunday is the Skunk Cabbage Classic.....I think I will be running the 10k and not the 1/2 marathon.....I also got permission from the hubby to register for the Rock-n-Roll Arizona Marathon on January 15, 2012. It will be a weekend away for me and the hubby...no kids. I was looking for one over winter break...hoping for Rock-n-Roll in New Orleans. They announced the date yesterday as March 4. Which doesn't work with my teaching schedule and I will hopefully be running Boston in April and makes that race too close..... So Arizona it is!
