|We were just 30 candles short!!!!|
Two good things for runners about turning 35:
*Moving up into a new age group for awards (from 30-34 to 35-39). There are some really fast 35-39 year olds women in our area, so this may not be such a good thing! But I like competing with older women than me and not younger, like I was in the last age group.
*My BQ time just went down by 5 minutes! The 18-34 year old group needs a 3:35, but now I need a 3:40 since I am in the 35-39 group. Before the standards changed in 2011, 3:40 was the 18-34 year old time, so I pretty much have always needed a 3:40!
There!!! I managed to find two good things about getting older!
So much more to post about training (just completed Hals' week of 2 10-milers and a 20-miler--ouch!!), but it will have to wait. It is going okay, and now I am in a lower mileage week before hitting one of two of the hardest weeks of the program. I am already dreading the 10 mile pace run followed by a 20-miler!
