Ok. So yes. It's true.

I am doing 1/2 marathon #4 this Sunday in Council Bluffs. Blyfinn I hope to see you there! Next Sunday is Ironman Kansas 70.3. Ok, so a 1/2 is a wee bit more than my training schedule calls for this weekend, but hey, it's just right next door a few miles, or so.... :) {Should I tell you about the 50 mile bike ride I have planned for Saturday??}

I'm pacing at the best I've ever paced and I'm totally loving it. Do I go out to PR at every race? Heck no! My goal was to PR at the Lincoln 1/2 Marathon, which I did: 8:33/mile. I also want to PR at the Vegas R&R 1/2 Marathon in Dec. The ones in between are for training, some bling and the boy cut shirts. :D Not to mention get me ready for Ironman!!!! {70.3}

My goal for this Sunday is probably 9:00ish/mile. My # goal is to take care of my legs. I will walk if I have to, but the 10 mile runs I've been doing have been easy peasy. So the 13.1 I'm not too worried about recovering from in time for IMKS.

So, if you have any last minute advice, want to scold me or give me some cowbell, you know where the comment section is. See you tomorrow for Foto Friday!

Today's workout: arctice 1500 yd swim {done}, 35 mile bike ride, 40 min run. RUN ON!!!

Have fun with the race. It's good you can be out there enjoying without feeling like you have to P.R.
