Yesterday was my first day back at work...school. I am a high school guidance counselor and LOVE my job!
So kids and teachers aren't here yet which is nice so I can settle in and start on all of those schedule changes :)
I like being back into a routine for sure. I have track practice tonight and it is only 3 X 800 @ HM pace. I have a half marathon Saturday. I am nervous and excited! I didn't train as much as I had wanted due to injuries and hiking 14er's but it's a downhill course overall.
The elevation at the start is 8500 feet, and gradually arrives at 7500 feet at the finish. However I ran this race in 2005 and there are hills. I ran it in 1:45 so I would like to run a 1:43 on Saturday. I sure hope I can. The plan is to start out easy and gradually get faster!!!
I had a great 9 mile run Sunday and if I feel good tonight that should give me confidence for Saturday! The hubby is coming too so that always helps!
