Yesterday I posted about how I am not ready to marathon train. Today I did the first run in my training plan:
2 mile warm up (slow, hurting, tight heavy legs)
2 mile short tempo (awesome, rocked it, went faster than I thought)
2 mile cool down (it’s really hard to go slow-hurts your legs after going fast
Regardless, I rocked it. I love
running training again! I am still scared for those long runs, but just following a plan felt good again. I came home and immediately googled “helena races” and up came a trail race series and a 15 mile trail run. I am sssooo tempted to sign up. Except I’ve got this thing called a move coming that is costing me buko $$$, so I can’t think about signing up for races—yet.
I did email my brother, who lives in Montana and asked him if he wanted to do this race with me. It’s only $30, for 15 miles on the backcountry forest service trails. Oh so tempting.
Anyway, back to my run. It rocked. I nailed my suggested paces. In fact, I came under in a few, but ssshhh, more than anything I just need some confidence boosting in my running.
How is your running and training coming?
Any fun races you are signed up for? I am signed up for the Georgetown to Idaho Springs half marathon, Top of Utah Marathon. Now I am not sure if I can make it to either. Good thing they are super cheap. I am now contemplating the Bozeman Marathon and the Elkhorn 25k and the local Helena running series. I need some mountain bike races in here.
