Random Thursday Thoughts:
- Minnesota State Fair starts today. We’re not going until the last day (when we’re seeing Maroon 5 and Train! Yeah!). BUT, my mouth is already watering for Sweet Martha’s cookies and a White Razzie Puppie (new this year: White-chocolate-stuffed Belgian waffle dipped in dark chocolate and drizzled with raspberry sauce). Yum!
- Track workout today was fun. 3 x 1 miles at 10k pace, with first lap a bit slower, then getting progressively faster on each lap to work on closing pace. Then 1 mile of 100m fast, 100m recover. Repeat. I was a little nervous about how the hammy would react to the speed, but it was totally fine. SO relieved.
- Meg is on a training trip with her cross country team. 3 days/2 nights in St. Cloud, with 2 or 3 workouts a day, good eats, fun times in hotel and team bonding. I want to do that! Would it be weird if I suggest to coach that we go on a group training trip?! If only this life and job thing would quit interfering with my running!
- I signed up for a 10k on Labor Day. The Victory 10k. Let’s hope this one is better than my Heart of the Summer 10k pacing disaster!
