First week of school....

is almost over! Welcome if you are joining me from the Blog Hop.

It is Friday and I have a day of testing and then we have our final reading activity that rolled over from the summer. We are having a pool party for all K-6th graders. We will also have a book swap happening to tie in the reading LOL! But it is going to be a long day again.

As far as my runs this week...I got a recovery run in Tuesday and Wednesday I tried to add some speed intervals into my 3mile run. I looked at it on my garmin and I got down to 6:30pace during the 400 repeats I did! It shocked me that I hit that fast when I wasn't on a treadmill!! My overal pace was 7:55 with a warm up and cool down. I was pleased with that. Today will be a easy run with the family after school. I am supposed to get one more mid distance run in this weekend before the marathon. I am not sure what I want to do yet. I have a race that is on a kinda hard course on Monday. So I might go with the flow this weekend and get what I can in so I can focus on the race.

What are your plans for the long weekend? Anyone else racing?

Good luck on your race! I'm in the middle of training for a half, so will be using the extra day off to get a long run in early enough to beat the heat.
