Tune up race tomorrow! (And Twin Cities training Week #10 recap)

Tune up race tomorrow with the Victory 10k.  I went back in my runningahead log to see what the course measured exactly last time I did it and I realized that 2 years ago at it was my 10k PR (46:31).  I had thought my 10k PR was slower and from 2007.  Apparently not!  Goal tomorrow is ambitious, but I’m definitely up for it!  Stay tuned!

This weekend was SO relaxing!  I took my own advice and slept (8 – 9 hours each night), drank beer/wine (2 glasses each night) and read Running The Edge.  It was a great last weekend of the summer.  Tomorrow completes a perfect weekend/summer with the Victory 10k in the morning, State Fair (mmmm, Sweet Martha’s Cookies!) during the day and Maroon 5/Train/Matt Nathanson concert (with the kids too!) tomorrow night.  Can’t wait!
