Monday Monday Monday Monday..

This morning I woke up so disoriented again. I had no idea what day it was…what was I supposed to be up early for? When I finally got my marbles together I realized the weekend was over (sad day) and it was MONDAY! I must be sleeping really hard.

If you missed all the fun excitement this weekend check it out:

With Joe


I had a question from a Reader this morning that I thought I would share with you all. I felt as though I haven’t talked much about the Chicago Marathon since I signed for it. Can you believe it’s in 2 WEEKS?!

Question: What is your goal pace for Chicago??? and what kind of pace do you go for when you do your 20-mile training runs?

Answer: I have NO goal pace for Chicago. Really I just want to runner with fellow bloggers and enjoy every moment of the city!! I signed up for Chicago to raise money for the St.Jude Hero’s and I am excited to be running a race for something bigger.

My pace is very interesting these days, which was something I was thinking a lot about on my run yesterday. I used to run a lot faster when I ran alone, but now that I run with a group more regularly I just run without really focusing on my pace just my mileage. I still can pick up the pace if I wanted to, but running to me has become a lot more fun when done socially and without the STRESS of worrying about my time.

After this marathon I will start doing some track workouts now that the weather has cooled off. Not to focus on my speed, but to really get in a GREAT workout!!!

Question for all of you: Do you focus more on your speed or mileage during a run? And for you non runners, do you focus more on the time or effort you put into a workout?

Off to the new position I go 🙂
