Goal:

Cut some time off of my marathon PR (3:32:43) so I can improve my chances of registering for Boston 2015. It's great to say I "BQ'd" but I want to say I ran it!

  1. RUN
    Marion 5 mi 00:40 07:56 pace

    Jenna wanted a tempo run but I knew my legs were too tired. I stayed with her about half the way and then let her go. Splits: 8:27, 7:39, 7:48, 7:50, 7:53

  2. RUN
    good Short Bridge from hotel 7.08 mi 01:03 08:55 pace

    I usually would not run this far after a tough race but I so miss running in CRW. Loved every step, every breath, every moment of this run. Legs loosened up quickly but I wasn't looking for sp... read more

    good CDR 15 mi 02:02 08:07 pace

    Great run!!!! Could have been cooler but I felt prepared for the inevitable heat and humidity. I have never felt that strong in those hills and I know it was my consistent hill training. Loved chat... read more

      Woohoo congrats Ashley. I'm sorry I did not get to see you. I had hoped to finish up my run in time to make it up there and cheer everyone on, but it took longer than planned. :(

    Fartleks/Intervals 6.06 mi 00:51 08:22 pace

    Ran a farlek/interval type workout with Matt. It was still quite hot (95) ughh but we found SOME shade. The workout was one mile warm, then 5x5:00 at threshold pace with 1:00 recovery (jog). Not as... read more

  6. RUN
    Spillertown 6.5 mi 00:58 08:54 pace

    Another hot run but it seemed not as bad as yesterday. Maybe because I ran slower. Splits: 9:21, 9:00, 8:37, 8:59, 8:48, 8:48, 8:47 pace for .50 .. A sweat bee stung me on my ankle during the last ... read more

    Refuge Tempo-ish 6.01 mi 00:50 08:20 pace

    Soooo our plan was a tempo run at the Refuge. There's a 6-mile loop so we figured one mile warm, 4 miles at tempo, one mile cool. The refuge has very little shade but there's no to little... read more

    Spillertown Loop 3.75 mi 00:36 09:34 pace

    So freaking hot! It was 95 when I started at 5pm. UGH. I took two walking breaks and kept the watch running so I say even with that this was a decent pace. When I was in the shade it was actually o... read more

      I started checking and it's not as bad as it's been here.. Today will be the 6th day in a row in the 90's. Our lows have been in the 70's with of course humid weather too. It looks like we send that heat east just in time for the race!
