Sat- 10 miles w/ 5k race in 17:35 *New PR!* Went in to the race with no pressure, I was in the end of an 88 mile week, I had just ran a great race at the 25k a week earlier with a hard workout on Thursday. So, no expectations. I wanted to support my friends Brett and Alanna who were putting on the race and HAVE FUN! I didn’t look at my watch once. I felt fantastic! I was pushing comfortably hard and ran pretty even with a 5:40 avg. pace. I came in first female, 4th overall.
Sun- 22 miles at South Mountain 7:00 avg pace. Coach John told me to just take it easy, no pace-pushing. That was an easy rule to follow as Matt and I went to see the Phoenix Symphony last night and didn’t get home until 10:30. Not a lot of sleep for a 4am wake-up call and 22 hard miles! By mile 11 I was done, but luckily I had my girlies there with me!
88 miles for the week, this coming week is another big week ending with 20 miles w/ 16 @ Goal marathon pace on Sunday. *gulp*
Along with big mileage and a few tough workouts, I will be scrambling to get my classroom packed up, report cards done, papers filed, gifts for the kids made….
I can’t believe my last 3.5 days as a first grade teacher are here! I am going to miss the kids and staff at Wildfire, but I am excited for my new journey!
