After flaking on my 6 mile run on Saturday due to rain, I made up for it on Sunday. A panic sudden realization about the fast approaching races on the horizon seemed to be exactly what I needed to kick my badunkadunk into gear. I set a goal for Sunday to finish under an hour and made my goal. 🙂

Also feeling a little unprepared for the races, Tiffany and I met this morning to run 3 miles. Since we’re trying to improve our pace, we tried to run a little faster. I’m really proud of our results. We are slowly improving.

Tomorrow, Tiffany and I are planning to work on sprints. Our BFF Hal recommends 6 x 400. I have never done real sprint work, so this should be interesting. I typically try to finish the last quarter mile run strong or I’ll sprint for a quarter mile in the middle of my run. I’m curious to see how I perform for each individual lap according to my virtual coach, Garmin.
Thursday, I will do another 3 mile run and some strengthening exercises. Then, later in the morning, I’m heading to Anna Maria Island for our Second Annual Moms on the Go Mommy Getaway. I can’t wait to sneak away with 14 of the greatest mommy friends! I’m looking forward to some sunset runs along the beach and then kicking back with a few beer by the pool and on the beach. As long as I can keep from binge drinking I should be ready for early morning runs!
