Friday Evening Run

20140509-212106.jpg

I got in an evening run today. I decided to do a 5k today to see what my 5k time was like and I sure went fast! My hard work has payed off. This is my fastest run ever! 🙂

My half marathon is approaching fast. I’ll probably cross train tomorrow and do a workout DVD. Then I have my long run on Sunday. After that it’s one more week and Sunday is the big day!! Getting excited!

Do you have an event coming up or a big race?

Raining outside….Check out a cool running website – SmashRun.

20140508-192832.jpgI was thinking about running today, once my husband got home from work, but it’s raining pretty hard right now. Oh, wells. I don’t think I’ll be running today. I did a workout earlier today, so I think that counts for something! I’ll probably run the three miles tomorrow. But I was looking at my running stats from SmashRun, and I’ve ran 142 miles so far this year. I guess that’s not bad considering I haven’t been running very consistently until I started training for the Portland Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon. Also, my average running pace this year is 8:44/mile. I’m pretty happy with that! Last year, I rarely got under 9 min miles.

Check out Smashrun! This is a neat website for runners! I like their running reports! If you like stats and tracking your runs, this is for you. http://smashrun.com?u=2628

Below is part of a screen shot of what type of information you’ll see on SmashRun! I think it’s pretty cool!
