Second of all, a big shoutout to Thing 2 who ran a 5:49 1500 for an almost 2 minute PR!!! Sadly, I missed this meet due to work :(. I am looking forward to seeing him run this week though...he is SO much stronger than he was during cross country.
And finally, I'm giving myself a shoutout because I ROCKED my 16 miler today! Last long run before Toronto and I went out hard to see if my pie-in-the-sky goal was reachable. I think so. Check this out:
|10:34 average! Whoa!|
My first goal for Toronto is to finish. I believe, no matter your time, finishing is still a big deal.
My second goal is to go under 11 min pace. That is a 4:47:45 finish.
My "The running gods have aligned to make this a perfect running day" goal is 4:40....which is a 10:41 pace.
I think I have a chance to do this. Toronto is flat, with a barely perceptible downhill. Given the right conditions, I know I can do this & let the Ragnar chips fall where they may 4 days later.
