You know you’re getting old when you get excited about a freezer.
In keeping with the theme of being old/home ownership, we spent Saturday all day trying to fix the leak in our brand new shower. So naturally, J cut a hole in our wall.
Thanks to J and my father-in-law, everything seems to be in working order now!
Anyways, back to the topic of this blog. Like the title of this entry implies, I’ve officially kicked of my 2013 racing reason. It feels a little early, but I feel like I have a little catching up to do after taking so much forced time off and having some pretty big speed goals for the year. First up, I’m training for the Point Bock Run 5 miler which is March 2. The fastest I’ve ever run that was in 48:54. I don’t want to just PR this race — rather, break 45 min. So I’ve got my work cut out for me.
I got a run in Friday, a solid workout on the stepmill/strength training on Saturday and a “long” run on Sunday. And that feels amazing to be back at it.
Today’s run splits:
Mile 1 – 9:40
Mile 2 – 9:22
Mile 3 – 9:05
Mile 4 – 8:49
Four miles in 36:58.
I’ve been taking it easy, but I feel like I’m getting really close to be able to start picking up the pace again. Thank goodness!
Off to watch the Golden Globes and the season premiere of Girls! #obsessed
