Today’s pre-race workout called for a tempo run and some speed work. After my 2 mile warm up, strides, and drills, I ran my 3 mile tempo @ 6:45-6:55 pace. The carpool line messed up my pace for one portion of the run, but I managed to finish in 20:46. After a two minute recovery, I ran 4 x 200m with 30 seconds rest in between. I finished with a 2 mile cool down.
I ran in my Mizuno Racing Flats again. Luckily, my new pairs should be here today.
And the change of plans…
It turns out that the race that I had planned on running this weekend was cancelled, so I am going to run the Tour de Fleurs Quarter Marathon on Saturday instead. This year is the first year that they will have a Half Marathon and a Quarter Marathon. In years past, there was a 20k and a 10k. The course runs along White Rock Lake, and it starts and finishes at the Dallas Arboretum. I expect it to be fast and flat for the first half, a challenge with hills for the second half, and as always for this event, very competitive!
