Final weekend before Houston

by on Jan.08, 2012, under Training Runs

Had two good runs this weekend, an easy 5 miler on Saturday and a confidence building 8 miler today.  Last weekend I had a terrible 10 mile run after 4 hours of sleep on New Year’s Eve and didn’t want that to be in my memory as I went to Houston.  I had also run a couple times this week but didn’t log them.  They weren’t good runs, felt fatigued from business at work and a lot going on.  Felt real good yesterday running with 3 others and enjoying the conversation.

Today we did an 8 mile route at a steady pace but not pushing it.  With a mile to go I said I wanted to pick up the pace every 1/3 mile and make the last mile at least my goal half marathon pace of 7:38.  Nice to see it come down to 7:21.  If I rest well this week and feel good in Houston I should have a good race.  Especially after being inspired by the Olympic runners who I will get to see.
