I'm getting another medal!

No, I'm not actually "winning" anything.  It's going to be a participation medal:)

For the Rock N' Roll 1/2 Marathon this Saturday!

It feel a little weird to have just finished my marathon after training for 4 months and then turn around and have another race to run...I'm sure I'll get over it though.

Yesterday was my Speed workout with Amy so I strapped on my super cool racing flats (Seriously why did it take me so long to buy a pair?) actually remembered to no only charge my Garmin but also bring it with me.

I know, right?!

Our workout was perfect for the week before a race:)

6 X 400 meters with 400 meters recovery.

Amy and I were walking for longer than we were running:)  'Cause that's how we roll.

I was really happy with my paces, and the fact that I was pretty consistant with my splits!
I think maintaining an even pace, is the hardest thing about running...other than running.

My goal pace was 6:26

My splits were:
6:10, 6:13, 6:12, 6:15, 6:15, 6:09

I like that I was able to finish just a little bit faster than I started:)
