I felt pretty good...the legs have bounced back from all the training and are feeling strong when I go up the stairs at work. I will do another 2-3 miles on Friday
I really like cold temps for running...although I've had some local warmer temps here. Those warmer temps here have settled up in Tacoma now though.
They are forecasting a high of 82F for Sunday 8/ (Nooooooo...8-0 )
I am not bummed out though...are some things that will soften this :
- The temps from 7am to 11am will be 57-66F, not optimal but not too bad.
- There are a lot of tree-lined spots on the course.
- The final 6 miles is near the water and the breeze is supposed to be off the water (and the Puget sound water is COLD). So the course there may be colder than the 'average forecasted location' for Tacoma.
I have cut and taped up a pace band for 3:52 already and I'm still going with that. I think I'll be ok. But it is unlikely I will try to go any faster if these temps come to pass.
This just in from the crazy weather department:
Colorado is having MORE SNOW. 50 days from midsummer and WTF?!?! They have had like 5 FEET of snow in the last couple of months.
