Three Things Thurday

  1. If anyone will be running the Chicago Rock & Roll Half Marathon on August 1, please let me know. I would love to try to meet up. I will be in Corral 7. I hope to PR with 1:55:58. My first full marathon was the Chicago Marathon (2008) and I am eager to run along that awesome crowd support again. It is complete chaos getting downtown for packet pick-up and on race day (6:30 AM start - yawn!). But, it will be well worth it.
  2. This Saturday, I will be running the Waunafest 10 miler. I would love to PR with a 1:25:30. This is my third time running this local race and I am really looking forward to it. The course will be different this year, but should be just as fun. I love the distance.
  3. So far, I ran every mile I had planned for July. I would REALLY suggest putting your training program on your refrigerator. Seriously. Every time I want to skip a run or cut it short, I think about how mad I'll be at myself the next time I go to grab something out to eat. It is really holding me accountable. This week I will have in 50 miles alone! I WILL log 166+ miles this month!! I will, I will!

  1. I am running RNR Chicago - Katye and I are in corral 8 shooting for a 1:58. When are you planning on going to the expo. Courtney from Run Courtney, Run is picking us up at the airport at 9 am on Saturday and then we are heading over. Let me know if you want to meet up at some point!

    I also have my plan on the fridge and it definitely keeps me accountable. We must be using similar plans, I will be at 168 for July

  2. I too am running the RNR Chicago. I am in corral 8. I had put down my estimated finish time as a 1:55. My current 1/2 PR is 1:54:14 (Columbus back in October). Three other friends and I are running actually (all of them are in higher corrals- 18, 26, and 28. We are getting into town on Friday and are doing the Kracker concert as by the time we purchased our entry it came with a concert ticket. Feel free to contact me at jodihiggins at hotmail dot com. It would be awesome to meet you!!

    My coach just gave me a printout of my training schedule and in this digital world, I didn't know what to do with it.

  10. I was going to tell you about TMB but looks like she commented, would be GREAT if the 3 of you can PR together.

    50 miles in one week!! How do you find the time and energy. Leading up to Eugene I capped at 42 and was super sore.

  15. Way to go on the mileage.

    I was thinking about Wannafest - I just looked up on the local calendars to see what was coming up - but there is a bike ride in Pardeeville this weekend and it would act as a good training ride, especially since I am biking to Dodgeville on Sunday - and I need a good back to back ride.

    I am planning on moving my 10 miler to tomorrow from this weekend - assuming that it isn't still POURING out (like now).

    Hoping you are fine and staying dry. We have rivers running between our house and our neighbors house. ;-)
