Oh how time flies. What was supposed to be my A race this spring is Saturday, 5/5. I say was supposed to be my A race because I already broke all the goals I had for this race. I wanted to break 1:55 and PR for the first time since August 2010. I ran a 1:52 in New Orleans in March. I still think it was one of my best races ever. I’ve had to re-evaluate my goals this week and see what my plans for Saturday are going to be.
My goals for this week are to get enough rest and to take care of my legs. I need to be good about sleep, which is somewhat difficult having just flown back from the west coast.
- Break 1:55 again. We will get Sara under 1:55. She is 100% capable of running this.
- Have a blast on a fast course.
- Listen to my body and see what happens. You never know, it could be a New Orleans repeat.
- Eat a brat and drink a beer at the finish line.
