Lately I have been loving these tempo runs. Ryan got me a Garmin for Christmas, and now tempos are fun in a weird sort of way. This morning I went 7 total with miles 3, 4, & 5 @ 7:30-7:40. I skipped my normal hilly route and ran the same half-mile loop a bunch of times.
Saturday is usually my long run day, but I didn’t feel going any longer than an hour this morning. Maybe tomorrow or maybe I’ll skip a long run this week.
BUT, exciting news: I think I’ve decided on which races to run this fall! We’re looking at a half marathon on September 29 and another half on November 3 (though subject to change if something comes up). The September half is a trail race and the November half is a road race, and I’d love to get under 1:40 for the road race. It’s 12 weeks out, and I found a 12-week plan online created by Ryan Hall that I think I’ll loosely follow. More on that later.
I didn’t do anything very exciting today, so here are some photos from our sibshoot yesterday:
