3 day weekend ahead and of course another race!

Friday, July 02, 2010

I am looking forward to the long weekend a lot going on hopefully some healthy bbq options (I will be bringing something healthy for all of them). Running an 8k on Sunday it is going to be part of a 10mile training run. Was happy to learn that I was in fact the inspiration for one of the guys at work to get back into running. All of my talking about running made him want to do it again. We actually enjoyed a really nerdy discussion on running, gatorade and which flavors quenched the best, also gels and post race rituals. Very, very nerdy and I know anyone listening would have been like OMG is she seriously talking about running again. Yes, yes I am. It has become one of the centers of my life and I will talk anything that I am passionate about into the ground. P90X, Insanity, Running. It's not all I am but it helps make me a better me! I digress! Long weekend...yeah!

    First off, enjoy your weekend and your runs! I am somewhat like you in that I do find myself talking about health to just about everyone. It is pretty funny when people will ask me what I think and I am like I am not expert, but they are like just tell me what you think, okay?

Enjoy the race and I look forward to the race report! GO GET 'EM!!!

    You talk of an 8K like it's a walk in the park :) I think it's great that you're talking to anyone that will listen about it! The world needs more of people like you...people who are positive about something - we truly have enough of the other!

Have a great time running and bbq'ing ;)

First Speedwork session complete.

Thursday, July 01, 2010

Completed my first speed session actually a tempo run for all the technical running lingo. It was on the pace I was supposed to be going but coming off the half it proved a push to keep the pace but I did. I am going to get fast before Chicago at least for me fast! Also finished my weight loss contest down another pound for a total of 6.5lbs lost throughout would have liked it to be more but I will take every pound I can get. Now if I can keep going in the direction I want to go running faster will be a lot easier. Running at 190 would be a lot less stressing to the body than running at 240!
