|Anyone know where home is? Anyone?|
When I ran my two previous races I wasn't worried about times or splits or paces at all. They were on trails, and they were tough. I just ran the best I could and crossed my fingers. Is this how you run trail races, if you've run them before? Or do you race with a specific time in mind?
|13 K Trail Race without a Garmin. Or even Mile Markers!|
Taking my own advice about salads, here is yesterday's with spinach, sweet potato, green beans, flax, grapes, strawberries, and balsamic. Yum!!
What is your mentality when you run or race on a trail--are you still concerned about time?
Since I got a Garmin (6 months ago) I'm paying a lot of attention to my paces. I'll try to run based on effort rather than stressing during the race if I'm running too slow for my expectations!
How do you taper for a half-marathon?
I know I don't need to taper as much as for a full marathon, but I will definitely cut my mileage this coming week. I'll keep the normal speeds the same but much shorter distances!
