What a glorious day! It felt more like Hawaii than Deadhorse. I drove around for a while looking for wildlife and any other interesting photo subjects but didn’t fine much.
I am having a hard time picking up my running pace. So today I just did a 3 mile run and ran as fast as I could push myself. I was still pretty slow, but did pick up the pace a bit but am still much slower than I want to be. I am assuming that my Nike+ with GPS is recording my time correctly. My marathon times have been getting longer and longer when I feel they should be getting shorter and shorter if I am actually progressing. So pushing myself with sprints will have to be my new focus. Nice days like today do give me incentive.
I need to get signed up with another Team In Training event. My next marathon is the Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco on October 17th but I am not doing that as a Team In Training run. I like to always be fundraising. It is still possible to donate to this important cause through my last event, the Prudhoe Bay to Palmer bike ride and Big Wild Life Marathon at Prudhoe to Palmer.
