After I bruised my knees pretty bad this weekend while skiing, I need a few days of rest from running. Swam today, maybe a bike ride tomorrow...<br>
Jill, you can add another race to my schedule, I just registered:<br>
Apr 12 - North Face Endurance 50 HM (Bear Mt)<br>
This will be my first ever trail race.

I got 6 miles in this morning. I pushed up the mph on the TM at each mile.

I managed a 2 mile run. Couldn't resist the heat wave (60!! unbelievable!!)<br>
Limped a bit, then it was alright. Hardest part was getting my knee brace on... could barely fit it over my swollen knee.

I wasn't going to start tempos until next week but ....<br><br>
6 today in a cold, wind driven rain. I picked up the pace just to get done. Not quite down to tempo pace, but it was definitely quicker than easy, so we'll call it tempo.

OK! I feel a renewed sense of motivation. I'm going to change my goal race from the Earth Day Half to Grandma's Half, now that I know I'm in. I'm starting an OFFICIAL training plan - Hal Higon's Intermediate Plan. Between the OFFICIAL training plan and the VRAA I have things to hold me accountable. I feel READY!! YAY!

Excellent BigG, and CONGRATULATIONS!!! Will you still be running the Earth Day HM? Shall I remove it or just add Grandma's?

Got 6 miles in on the first part of the LVHM course. Now that I know the entire course I'm feeling quite confident.

I still plan to run the Earth Day half, it's just going to be the race I try to get in under the 2 hour mark on. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

It was a nice evening for a run ..... 8.1 easy miles.<br><br>
Yeah, there's really nothing intimidating in that section. I've found that I am slowest in the park, and that's because of the softer surface.<br><br>
One thing to be aware of ... You come out of the park and you're at a little under 11 miles. Those last couple of miles trend uphill, so leave a little in the tank.
