quickie post

Tomorrow is the Bridge to Brews 10k which I'm only moderately excited about. I haven't run a 10k since December 2005, but I really don't think this is a guaranteed PR. I need to run better than 7:38 pace to PR which sounds hard! We'll see. It's been a while since I PR'd in any distance and my ego could use the boost. I'm going to run my guts out and see what happens. I will have a race report up asap!

Here's the summary of my week so far. I am not super motivated this week but ended up having some good runs.

Monday: nada

Tuesday: run
6.0 miles/53:22/8:54 average pace
easy run in Beaverton on the Fanno Creek Trail

Tuesday: swim
1000 yards/21:12
quick swim after the run

Wednesday: run
5.0 miles/no time data for this run because I ran sans watch! Definitely was an easy pace.

Thursday: bike
10.5 miles/40:01/15.7 MPH
Lovely ride outside on the Springwater

Friday: run
8.0 miles/1:05:32/8:12 average pace
Forest Park with Zach. Started off rough (a tiny bit hungover and generally not into it) but ended up feeling great:

first 4 miles in 34:56 (8:44 pace) - first uphill mile a sluggish 9:20
last 4 miles in 30:36 (7:39 pace) - last downhill mile a smokin 6:42

Today (Saturday) was a rest day and tomorrow is the race.

Thanks for reading! Hope everyone is having a great weekend. :)

How'd it go? I'm assuming better than a DNS. I would like to live vicariously through your race report, please. Hope you had fun!!!
