Holy cow – there’s only about a month left until ZOOMA Florida! Time flies. As we get closer to the race, those long runs keep getting longer – and more intimidating! ZOOMA has teamed up with 1st Place Sports for a 10 mile training run on January 3. I’ll be there along with my other ambassadors, so that we can all tackle double digits together! RSVP here.
Remember how I said last week that I suck at sticking to a training plan? Well, this week I actually got in all of my runs as planned. I know – time to die of shock.
Tuesday – Quick run around the ‘hood 3.25 m in a hair under 35 minutes. I was hangry the entire time, so it was a little bit miserable.
Wednesday – Fartleks because I enjoy torturing myself. I covered about 4 miles including warm-up and cooldown, but the entire time I was miserable.

Saturday – A quick 2.56 mile jaunt around the neighborhood before heading off to do family stuff. I completely and totally dragged ass on this run. That seemed to be the theme of the week.
Sunday – FINALLY a good one! I got in 8 very solid miles in 1:30:53 (a 11:22 average pace). I kept it easy and did 4/1 intervals since they seem to be agreeing with my lately.
After last week, I have about 40 miles left until my goal of 500 miles for the year. Looks like I’ll be kickin’ it up a notch to achieve that in the last two weeks of 2014!
