My day tomorrow is pretty packed, and so I decided it'd be best to do my long run today. I waited until Mathis got off work for us to run together on the Huckleberry. The weather was a little warm -- still in the 60s so I can't complain too much! :)
Today I got to run with my new Garmin Forerunner 305!!!! :) It arrived on Wednesday, and this was my first run with it. I LOVE IT. It works so well, and I can hook it up to my computer which is something I never did before. I also ran with compression socks and my new bicband today -- both made the run great! I will wear both next week for my half-marathon, and I wanted to do a trial run with them today.
I really tried to push the pace today. I am hoping to PR next week, and I feel that I'm at the point where I should be working on my speed a bit. It was tough, but I'm pleased with today's run! Having Mathis with me really helped. I carried water with me, but still got pretty thirsty towards the end. I'll do a few more runs before Saturday, but I'm getting very excited about the Capital City Half-Marathon!
Tonight I'm stretching my legs and enjoying a night on the couch watching my Spurs. We're going to open up a bottle of Virginia wine and just relax........ :)
Have a great weekend!
