Training Tuesday

So here we are in week six of my training plan for the Fort2Base Race. It's exactly at the half way point. With just a few weeks to go, I can say confidently that I could complete the race today if I had to, but it will be a lot more pleasant with the six weeks I have left to prepare. Here are a few notes on the progress:

  • I took an extra rest day this week following the Fitness for America 10K. While this wasn't scheduled, I needed it after setting a new PR!

  • My new shoes are helping, but I'm still nursing a shin splint in my left leg.

  • I realize that I need to add some speed work or tempo runs into my running at some point, but I feel like distance is more important than speed. Maybe next time.

  • Today I tried rollerblading. I got my run out of the way this morning, then hit Busse Woods this evening to give it a try on my $2.99 rollerblades from Goodwill. It was way tougher than I thought I would be. I fell once, but didn't injury myself.
P.S. - If you haven't done it yet, you should enter my contest for a free entry into the Fort2Base Race!
