Well would you look at that…it’s Friday and there’s a weekend full of running plans ahead of us. On Saturday I’ll be heading out to Danville for the Lululemon long run but will only be putting in four casual miles in preparation for Sunday’s NorCal half marathon. Speaking of which, let’s talk goals. Come Sunday, I’d like to aim for 1) minimal GI issues (yes, this is a goal), and 2) seeing what these legs can do.
If you’re saying, “Wow, way to make the most ambiguous goals ever,” you’re right. Would I like to break my 1:31 PR? Of course. Have I been putting in the speed work to sustain a 6:42 pace for 13.1 miles? No. Thus, I’m going to go out with these goals in the back of my mind, but remind myself that it’s OK if they don’t happen. Either way, I just need to go out there, give it my all, and try to have some fun along the way.
Now on to Friday Favs!
I’ve always been a subscriber to Runner’s World, but it’s about time that I joined the Running Times party as well. Check.
After the rough time I was having last week, these showed up on my desk at work. A lovely surprise from my parents that just make me want to smile.
Oh ya, this. I got it out from storage, had it tuned up, and well…more on this later.
And now for the winner of the Oiselle arm warmers giveaway. Congratulations to (drum roll please)…
