Fall racing!

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:

Our clothing gets scruffier as you move from left to right.  Please disregard my wrinkly black crewneck.

Ouch.  Again….
