My PR from last year is 1:28:05. So given that I know I'm capable of that the following are my goals:
1. To win the race. Well damn, you may say but shit I didn't sign up to lose. I'd like to win the bitch, if possible.
2. To PR. I feel I'm in better shape. It's likely. But you really never know.
3. To get a freakin good race photo! Geesh, the training is fun, falling in pot holes during dark training runs is humorous, chasing others in Umstead is great but get me a quadilicious race pic PLEASE!! Let me be toeing off with the sun at my back! And no grimace..lord, no grimace.
My training this week has shortened daily mileage. Basically all 5 and 6 milers. Being that I like to be proactive in my training I'm putting my energy elsewhere:
|Stalking the weather from my Bosu, iPhone and laptop constantly.|
|Work on my abs. That is bad positioning..don't do that.|
|Protein time! No need to puff up like an oom-pa-loompa this week. Feed the muscles!|
So, the week is moving along. Ho hum...Good luck to everyone doing Chicago!!
