Better Week, Better Run

I completed all my runs plus 2 spin classes last week and covered 9 miles on Saturday without much difficulty. I was definitely ready to be done at the end, which makes me a little nervous because my longest run before the race will be 10 miles. However, unless I really fall apart at the end, I will meet my goal of less than 3 hours. I think having Richard with me will help me to keep going. I've also some non-time goals. I want to finish feeling good and stay hydrated during the race.

Today I had a very sweaty interval session at the gym. I'm not a big fan of running on the treadmill, but it's nice for trying to improve speed. I can set the treadmill faster than I usually run and keep it up until the end of the interval. My speed varies so much when I'm outside. I'll start an interval fast and slow down until the end.

I've been checking the weather for Indianapolis and I think I'll need to break out my running pants. So far, I've been comfortable in long sleeves and capris. I have 2 new shirts that I'm trying to decide between. One is a little warmer, so I'll probably take them both and decide that morning.
