Three Things Thursday

1. Thanks for all your comments and feedback on Monday's race. Some of you seemed a bit confused by the lengthy "warm-up" so I should clarify that it wasn't so much a warm-up as an extension to the race. As you know, I'm elbow-deep in marathon training so I knew it would be a good way to incorporate my long run and test out some marathon-pace miles on tired legs. Mission: accomplished.


2. With my long run/race on Monday this week, I did some shuffling of the schedule. After taking Tuesday off, I met Juliana for a 10K recovery run early Wednesday morning. Tonight I'll be running with my clinic and we have speed work on deck. I'm aiming for 8x800; after missing the last two weeks due to illness and exhaustion, I'm hoping it goes well!


3. Hubs and I are taking tomorrow off work because it's a special day for us and we have some big plans. Stay tuned for details tomorrow! (Got to love a 3 day work week!)


Have a great day!

Can we win something if we guess what it is? My guesses:

1. You are buying something from IKEA?
2. You're trying a Tim Horton's BELT for the first time?
3. You're going to try to use Canadian Tire Gas Bar coupons at the store?

I know it has to be one of these three! I know it. Call me psychic - but it's true.

I have the same plan for my 10 mile race on Sunday - I'm "warming" up with six before hand and using the race as a marathon pace prep! Yes, we are crazy!

Good luck at the track! Enjoy your 3 day weekend!
Happy Thursday!
