After reading Anna’s blog this morning, I immediately signed up for the half-marathon that I’ve been training for. It wouldn’t have been the worst thing in the world if it was sold out since there are like 3 other fall half marathons here. But I am happy to do the Silver Comet again because I really think I can PR this year.
I’ve been following Hal Higdon’s intermediate training plan. The intermediate plan has me running 5 days a week which, for me, is too much. So I’ve just been taking one of the shorter run days as a rest day. Seems like it’ll be fine. I know from experience that if I run 5 days a week, I’m going to burn out. Not the best way to get a PR!
Today I did 3.5 miles. I kept it at an easy 5.8mph pace. Sometimes I forget that I don’t need to push myself for every single run. That’s what speedwork and tempo runs are for.
I went Trader Joe’s tonight and an interesting new product – guacamole hummus! Yum, a combination of my two favorite foods, I’ll take it. Have you found any new Trader Joe’s products lately?
