I ran the Phoenix 10k last Sunday and came in first place female with a new PR of 34:54. (5:37 avg) Results here. I should have run faster, ( 34:30 or below was my good-day goal) I let my Garmin (which was not accurate to the course) dictate my pace. I worked hard though, and am happy that my last 2 miles were faster than the middle 2, but I need to lose the fear of the 5:30 pace. John has coached me and has trained me to be able to run this pace, so I know that it is all mental. I need to not be afraid of it! I will get there.
It has been SO chilly here in the mornings! I actually wore my new Brooks Utopia Running Tights this morning along with the Essential Run LS 1/2 Zip. I am in love with both, they were so cozy and warm! Below is a pic in my winter get-up with my Olympic Trials Shoes! The Brooks T7!!! Man, I love those shoes.
Now for the wish list:
How cute is this jacket???
It is the Utopia Jacket Embossed in Grey. Size small please!! Anyone, anyone? 😉
Next up: Big Sur Half Marathon– I am SO excited!!! I have been running mega mileage and have been feeling really great! I will taper a bit for this race as I have high expectations of myself going in to this last half marathon before the trials.
