May Re-Cap, Calgary Marathon 10k, and whats next

Monday, May 31, 2010

Just a quick recap of May. Things have been going fairly well, not sure of my weight at this moment, but I was down to 232 last week, which is inching closer and closer to where I want to be.

Pacing this 10k Clinic has been wonderful and painful at the same time. I really love to help and inspire people, but I also want to meet my goals. I haven't been putting up the mileage I would have liked, as I pace the faster of the more gradual group They split the clinic into an advanced group and gradual/1st timers group. The first timers only run 50% of the distances during the week and barely make it up to 10k by race day, its meant for people who simply want to complete it. I have been pushing the speed a little, so that has been nice, but can only push these guys so much ;)

This clinic ends June 8th, which is the same day my new 1/2 Marathon Clinic Starts :) Little nervous about it, but that has nothing to do with the running aspect LOL, anyway... moving on. I have accidentally signed up for Melissa's 22k AND 10k, so I'm going to give the 22k a shot, but we will see how that all plays out closer to September. Otherwise I have also signed up for the Victoria 1/2 Marathon in October!

This past weekend I ran the Calgary Marathon 10k and scored a Personal Best time of 1:08:11, I'll take it :) (Previous was 1:10:30 ish(official time))Next 10k race is loops for troops on June 20th, where I hope for 1:06:00 or better.

P.S. Life is wonderful :)))

    Yay for all you've accomplished! You should be really proud of yourself ! All of those 10k clinic participants should consider themselves to be very lucky to have had you keeping them motivated. When I took the 10k at Crowfoot last fall they didn't split us up (they should have) and 2/3 of the class dropped out because it was way beyond a beginner 10k plan.

    I'll be at Melissa's too! I was determined to get a spot in the 22k so I would have to keep up my running through my vacation...nothing like a race registration to keep you motivated!

    Don't be nervous about the HM clinic. I hear the instructor is a real pussycat. emoticon I know I've told you this offline but I wanted to put it here, too: I'm extremely proud of what you've accomplished in your last few months of running.. Making the jump from 5 to 10 k is a HUGE step and you did it with style! I've no doubt that you'll make your goal at Loops. emoticon
