To make the day even better, it is supposed to be 48F today! Yes, it is mid-February and it is supposed to be almost 50 degrees outside. According to the weather it will break 50 tomorrow. The only bummer is that I have a race this weekend so I'm not going to log any big miles outside today or tomorrow because I want to be ready for Sunday's race. Instead, I'll get Maddie out for a couple miles today and tomorrow! She deserves another run outside.
|Me, Amanda, & Felice (2010)|
- Felice, the speedy one, has the first leg of 9.2 miles
- I'm running the second leg, 5.7 miles
- Amanda, who became a marathoner since we ran last year, is finishing the race with the 11.3 mile leg
- Yes, that equals 26.2 miles! We're running a marathon relay. I cannot wait. Last year we finished in 4:22:59. I cannot wait to see what we can do this year.
Speaking of my 5.7 mile leg, I am supposed to do a 5 mile tempo run today. I'm saving it and adding 0.7 on and will run it on Sunday for the race. That means my goal is 55:06 (9:40/mi). I have not done a tempo run outside since last fall, so I am hoping it goes well. Of course, I wouldn't mind going faster...but who wouldn't mind that?
