This has been a good training week so far for me.
Allergies are not so bad that helps a lot and it is not AS hot as last week...well in the early morning at least..after 11 am it is over 95.
Today I had speedwork. I did 11x400s. That is the most reps I have done so far. According to McMillian I should be between 2:08 and 2:15. Today I did 2:11 and 2:10. I am making progress A month ago I was at 2:15.
Last weekend at my 10k race I picked up a bunch of flyers for all kind of races in the LA area. One was for a new RnR Half Marathon in Indian Wells, on NEW YEAR'S EVE! How cool! I have never done a RnR and I would love to run one, they look like so much fun! Indian Wells would be a good place for us, Bill's dad lives in Palm Springs so we could have seen him at the same time...but....Yep there is a but...when I went to look it up and I saw the fees I thought I had read that wrong but no...$175!!! For a HALF! That is way too much for me! I am not good enough to justify that !! And I thought Disneyland was expensive!!
Since my last race, I have been thinking about signing up for a 5k race on August 6th. The race is just 30 minutes away, for California that is super close!!! They have a kids race and my boys would love to do it. At my 10k last week I ran the first 5k faster then my best 5k in a race (very stupid I know) and so now I want to do a 5k to see where I am at with that distance. I would still do my long run next week. The race is on Saturday and I would do my 10 miles on Sunday. I have to make up my mind soon before registration close!!!
7 more followers until I get to 150! That is pretty cool!
I think I will do a giveaway when I get there! Yes Chris, with lavender candle!!!!
