Time to Get Racing Again

It's time for me to get racing again!  When I got back to running after my last injury I told myself I was going to take it slow and not push too hard until after Hood to Coast.  I had picked out the Grasshopper 5k at the end of September and the Long Beach Half Marathon in October as good races to start a comeback.  I am very excited to get racing again but I thought I would be in better shape at this point.  I still have two weeks until the 5k and four weeks until the half marathon so I am hoping to make a jump in fitness by then.  When I look at where I was a month ago I am very pleased with the progress I have made.  It is hard to have perspective sometimes but I know the fitness will come back with consistent training so staying healthy at this point is what is most important.  My training this week had two interval workouts in it and I am happy to say I ran a sub 6 minute mile for the first time in training all year.  Now I just need to run 13.1 miles at a sub 6 minute pace!

In the meantime I have some amazing new Oiselle clothing to keep me motivated to get out the door!  I am very excited for the weather to cool down here so I can wear some of the fall gear!
