- While running errands, I ended up driving part of the route for the Utah Valley Half Marathon. It will be a beautiful run that covers several miles that I travel on a pretty regular basis and then passes by my Alma mater. There is just something a little extra exciting about running "at home."
- I have been pretty tired, both sleepy tired and just plain worn out, this week. It hasn't stopped me from running though. Monday I did six hill intervals, two minutes each, on the treadmill. Total run = 4 miles. Yesterday I ran 5 miles in 47:17, with three miles @ 9:05.
- A while ago, I read in Runner's World that you can shave 5:27 off your marathon time by losing five pounds, so I have a goal to weigh five pounds less by marathon day, which is October 2. I'm not going to wait until August to start trying though. Trying starts NOW!
RUN: I have an easy four miles on the schedule tonight. I'm going to try out my new shoes. I'll let you know what I think tomorrow. (I'll also be announcing the giveaway winner and talking about my weekend racing plans!)
