Tis the season...already!

Today's the day. I honestly think it feels like it should be this time already.

Last year, I felt as if I was starting from scratch. During the off season this year, I didn't let myself slip, kept a bit of mileage, and I feel like I maintained my distance fairly well. It's two months until my first race of the season and my goal is to start it with a bang. I am really looking forward to the fact that it's only a 5K...piece of cake. I already know that I can knock out that distance so for the next two months I can work on speed. Depending on the course, I hope to finish this race between 25 an 27 minutes tops.

Back to my training diet. I think the headache I have is from lack of sugar...oh, I miss my sugar. I split up my mileage today. I did a fast four miles this morning. It felt really good. Especially since the weather was warm enough for shorts. I love to run in shorts. Tonight, I finished off my first day of training with a three miler on Harvard Hills Rd...killer. The last 1.5 miles was up hill in to the wind. Perfect road to train on. Perfect road to work on my speed.

This is going to be a fun season!

I am glad you were able to keep up over the winter months though, sounds like this year will be an even better running year for you! How exciting! :0)
