Today is my 100th post! How about that!
This evening Barry and I headed to the Dora trail (the bike trail in town) for a 5 mile tempo run. I had a tough run today and struggled to hit a 9:04/mile average for the middle 3 miles. I think it is going to take some time for me to adjust to doing track work and a tempo run in the same week.
We had a lot of rain Sunday evening through yesterday and the low water bridge was underwater again. They had barricades blocking the trail, which is right where the 2 mile turn around is. So we turned around, finished the tempo part of the run at the car, and did our cool down mile around town.

At least the June issue of Running Times came today. I can wallow in self pity after today’s less than stellar run while I read my magazine 🙂 I will be icing my shins at the same time because they are still really bugging me.
Happy pre-Friday! We have some exciting weekend plans involving boots, spurs, and 8 seconds being the longest 8 seconds of your life.
Any guesses what we’re doing this weekend!? I don’t think my hints were too mysterious 😉
What are your weekend plans?
If you do speed work, did you have a hard time adjusting initially?
