Goal #1: Run the Run Into The New Year 10k on 12/31/11.
-I don't really have a goal time for this race. I'm doing it to give myself a reason to run and a time to beat, which leads me to
Goal #2: Run the Great Lakes Expo Run 10k on 01/29/11 in under an hour (or at the very least improve on whatever I do at the New Year's Eve race).
Today is Day 1 of my 8 week training plan. I got home from work and promptly crawled under the covers for 45 minutes in an attempt to get warm (and let the joys of rush hour traffic dissipate). Finally, I couldn't stall any more. I pulled my winter running clothes out of the closet and laced up a new pair of Adizero Tempo running shoes since my old ones are due for retirement.
|Woo...glistening white running shoes. Must get them dirty!|
Distance: 3.11 miles
Avg. Pace: 9:59
I've got 7 weeks and 6 days left to make this happen. Wish me luck...and kick my ass if I start showing signs of slacking!
