Thanks for all the words of wisdom regarding the course elevation for Valley of the Sun ~ it helped me get my mind around it a bit more.
I'm with Jeff ~ being an AZ girl, flat is where it's at for me too :) It makes Micheline crazy that I consider running up my driveway as *hill work*.....but maybe she'd be impressed with the curb-work that Lisa and I do as our hill training? Going up and down curbs can be hard work ;) Apparently some people just don't get it.
I'm kind of excited about this run in a strange way ~ I'm not as well trained as I was for RNR, but for some reason I feel good. I feel strong. And it feels great!
Hopefully, that will hold true on Sunday too ;)
Last night was a quickie, tired run. I hate running so late at night, but I hate even more leaving to run when I could be spending time with my kidlets. We've been having some intense family Wii bowling tournaments the last couple nights! So I headed out around 8:30 ~ the only thing that got me out was knowing I didn't have far to run. It's taper-week, afterall! :)
Short Taper Run:
Mile 1: 13:02 (wow, need to wake up Pokey!)
Mile 2: 11:21 (okay, now you're movin'....)
.6 mile: 6:40
Total Distance: 2.6 miles
Total Time: 31:03
Average pace: I don't need to know ;)
Oh yeah ~ the Word Cloud idea over there --------> was stolen from Viv ~ what a cool idea! It's interesting what words repeat in my blog all too often. I like it....it's kind of an at-a-glance version of who I am and what is important to me ~ running wise. Cool.
