- I have come to the realization that I am a “running geek” thanks to JayDub’s post on Galloping Geeks. He collected/wrote a fair list of observations about runners, and yes, I am indeed a ‘Running Geek/Nerd”.
- I ran an awesome 35 minute Tempo run yesterday. (click the link to see the Garmin results) I am really lovin’ the speed work. I was a little surprised at how the Garmin tracked my pace because I didn’t notice all of the up and down during my run, but my HR was very steady. One note I found interesting is that I did not feel the slight headache afterwards, so it appears my body is getting much better at processing oxygen on these speed runs. SCORE!!!
- This weekend I have a 6 mile marathon pace run on Saturday followed by a 13 mile long run on Sunday. I love the double runs on the weekends. The training plan I am following added the Saturday runs, and I am really liking them. On my past training plans I felt kind of lost on the extra rest day, but I will see how I feel once my mileage gets back up to 40+.
- I added the new countdown to the site for the San Francisco marathon. It seems so far away right now, but I know it will get here fast. I haven’t officially signed up for it yet, but will probably take care of hotel and registration soon.
Take care everyone, and have a great weekend.
