Traci - Week Of
6 more days until the 1/2. Am I ready? Well, I guess. Not as ready as I would like to be, but with an 8 week training schedule turning into 4 1/2 weeks, I guess I'm as ready as I can be. And that's all that matters. My endurance is nowhere near where I think it should be. My mind is also slacking. But today helped. Jen made me (forced and dragged me screaming and crying) to do our L10 on the TREADMILL. I despise the treadmill. The furthest I've ever gone on that stupid thing is 4. And 4 miles sucks on a treadmill. But, thankfully, with Jen talking my ear off, we did it. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but let's not make it a habit. However, we did keep our pace. We ran each mile at a 9:40 pace and walked through water breaks at each mile, which averaged out right at the 10 min pace we want to be at. I was completely drained all day, and will definitely feel it tomorrow. But luckily, this is our week off of vigorous training and Saturday it will all be over with. Now, if we can only get rid of this darn snow, we'll be good to go! Good luck Cori, Jen and Mark!
