Tonight the 3 Musketeers were all together for our second to last training run before the WHM on Sunday. We started with a half mile walk, then we did an interval of 2 minutes running and 90 seconds walking for one mile. For the return mile we did an interval of 2 minutes running and 75 seconds walking. We wrapped it up with a half mile walk.
Why some many different intervals you ask? It's all in an effort to find the "perfect" interval to use for Sunday's half marathon. We aren't going for a PR, we're not as well trained as we were for the Sept half marathon, and we're really just going to try to have fun so . . . saying that - we aren't interested in pressing the pace with our normal 2:10 & 1 interval. We're interested in looking for something a little more leisurely. Still no final decision, so we're packing both timers and my watch - we'll decide once we get to FL and get a taste of the hot weather. I'm leaning for the 2:2, personally. Stay tuned for the race recap to find out which one we choose (I know - you're all on pins and needles, NOT!)
After our quick training, we went to a new Mexican restaurant here in town. It was a "pre-departure" planning meeting as well as a chance to meet "C's" daughter middle "A" (the last of "C's" family that I had not met). "A" is awesome! I had a great time chatting with her. All of "C's" daughters are the most amazing people! I'm so thrilled to have gotten a chance to meet her before she goes off and starts her "real adult" life. For all my readers, "A" is the one that had emergency surgery earlier this summer and who just underwent exhaustive and painful testing with results all coming back negative (yeah!). She is finally on the mend and about to move to the east coast. I wish her all the best and hope our paths will cross again soon.
While we were at dinner, I gave "C" 2 shirts . . the pink one we're going to wear for the race
and the green one is for sporting around the expo (so Momma of 3 on the run can find us more easily) (note: ignore the very small print in the middle that says "your text here" - that's not really on the shirt).
