Change of plan...NO DAY Off ... Callie (my daughter) came home this afternoon. We are all going the Walk for Life in Austin tomorrow. Callie wanted to run this evening so I ran 2 miles with her at 9:40 pace. I don't think this short/slow run will do any harm. Tomorrow will be easy with only an hour or so of walking.
Resting for the 3M half marathon on Sunday. I started looking at the race and figured out it's a point to point race and not a loop. It is also a net 315' elevation drop. This will be interesting as all of the races I've run so far were loops and mostly hilly. I'm really not sure what I can do on a downhill course like this but I'm thinking about aiming for a 7:15 pace but would really like to run a 7:07 pace. The first four miles seem to be a net 0' elevation drop and then the decent begins. If I can stick at about 7:15 for the first four miles I might be able to pull off the 7:07 avg. If I bonk it's ok since this is only a training run anyway :-) I'm also not sure how well I can do with only a couple of rest days after several hard workout days.
1 Timothy 6:11
But you, Timothy, man of God: Run for your life from all this. Pursue a righteous life—a life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy. Run hard and fast in the faith. Seize the eternal life, the life you were called to, the life you so fervently embraced in the presence of so many witnesses.
