10k in TWO DAYS!!!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

This is going to be my fifth 10k. and my third time to run the Chile Pepper 10k. I didn't train for it at all, so I'm kinda scared. I just expect to run close to an 8 minute pace... we'll see. I've become pretty slow since running a marathon for hte first time last april. My pace moved to about 9:30 for runs that are only 5-7 miles. Oops. I'm gonna have to tap on the gas on Saturday.

In other news, I have been at my new job for over two months now. I'm doing web/graphic design and design for iPhone apps! Super cool gig. But I don't have as much time to work out. I teach 4 classes a week at the gym which kinda keeps me in check, and I'm also about to start training for my second Marathon which is on 3/6/11. I think I'm gonna have to start running more during the week to prepare for training because right now I might run twice a week. If you're lucky....

One more thing--I signed up for the Ozark Adventure Race!
And I'm doing the LONG one on a team with two other guys who I don't really know very well. But i've been mountain biking a LOT to prepare for that. just bought a bike back in July). Had my first hardcore crash on Monday. I just have some bad bruises. Nothing too damaging.

I just need to learn how to convince myself to eat healthier.

    Good luck in the Chile Pepper 10K. You've got some impressive times girl! I'm guessing you do great without the training.
