Well the weather is not looking very good for the marathon next Sunday. 60 degrees and possible thunderstorms are predicted right now, but as we know it may all change before then.

My training program only has me running two days this week. both of which are very easy.

Track Repeats: 10-20 min warm-up, (6) 400's @ 5:48 pace, cool-down

Tempo Run: 1 mile warm-up, 2 miles @ 7:26 pace

I'm wondering what you guys would suggest for running this week.?

Ok....Now it's time to let the Doubt Begin! :-(

 

James 1:6 

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind

Track Repeats today. Pretty easy as I only had to do (6) 400's. Ran one with a high school kid and then a 100 with him for his final repeat (It was FAST! :-)

My cold is starting to feel better so hopefully I'll be 100% by Sunday. Now if the weathermen can just get it wrong, as usual, things should be good for the race.

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

Very Aggravated....! 65 Degrees at race time. I feel like I've wasted a lot of time and now money on a race that won't turn out good.
