1. I finally got some new kicks! I’ve been needing another pair of my trusty Saucony ProGrid Stabil CS‘s for weeks now, but I always have trouble tracking down my size. (This time I got two pairs!) A pair actually came in 2 weeks ago and they were my usual size 10.5, but they were too big! We compared them with my previous 10.5 and there was definitely a difference. Ugh! We were able to send them back and thankfully the new pair(s) fit just right. And the best part is, I got a new colour! Every pair I’ve had previously has been blue. Introducing: PLUM!
Check out the worn down heel on my old pair. Yikes!
2. It was freeeeezing for our group run tonight! Hard to believe I was able to wear shorts and a tank last Thursday. We had an LT run on the schedule, I opted to skip the LT portion to save my legs for Sunday.
3. Speaking of which…. Sunday, March 28th: Around the Bay 30K, “Older than Boston”
I’ve registered and been unable to run in both 2008 (ITBS) and 2009 (separated shoulder). Here’s hoping third time’s the charm!
While this race is technically a training run for my upcoming marathon(s), I’m definitely seeking some 30K redemption from that miserable race last summer.
As usual, I have three goals:
A. (I hope I can) 2:50:00 (4:00 marathon pace)
B: (I think I can) sub-3:00:00
C: (I know I can) PR sub-3:05:03
Around the Bay is known for its challenging rolling hills in the final 10K and the weather is not looking good. Keeping this in mind, I don’t expect to achieve my “A” goal, but I don’t want to sell myself short either. Anything could happen!
