Wednesday was a great hill workout, 15 miles with the incline from 1-5% incline. While jamming out to tunes, I upped the incline .5% incline after each song and then went back down. That took up the first hour and then I went back up the hill upping the .5% incline after every two songs.

Spring is almost here and that means getting some races in before the Boston Marathon. Before Boston I will be doing a couple of 5Ks and three half marathons. I have a specific intention for each of the half marathons (each of them are two weeks apart).

Frostbite Classic – This will be the first of the three half marathons. I’ve never done this course. It has some rolling hills and I hope that it will help wake my legs up for racing and get some hill work at the same time.

Lincoln Presidential – Another new course for me. It should be a relatively flat course. I hope to use this one as speedwork.

Go! St. Louis – This course I’ve done twice before. It has hills and will make for a good workout. Boston will be a week after this race, so I plan to keep this one more marathon pace.

Today I had an amazing LT workout and then we went out to lunch, Barnes and Noble, and did some leisurely shopping and then watched a movie. Rob outdid himself and even made us bread, it was delish!! He made a 10 grain bread. I think he enjoyed the process which means he’s interested in trying more, yay!

Then I did 7 miles easy and chilled with my running books. 🙂
