Last night after an easy workout, I made toasted cheese and tomato soup and sat down on the couch to catch up on all the TV that I have missed this week. I finally was able to watch the recap of the NYC Marathon - I had goosebumps through the whole thing. Of course I knew that Paula Radcliffe was going to win but I didn't know about the American runner, Kara Goucher.
I think I remember hearing something about her at the Olympics but I never saw her run until last night. I was amazed that she had never run a marathon before and managed to place third at NYC which is the first podium finish for an American woman since 1994! She is now my new favorite runner!
Yesterday's easy run has left me feeling ready for time trails today at practice. Apparently I cannot run a 400m - my choices are:
1. 600m and 300m
2. 300m and 150m
or some other combination of those
So which ones should I run?? I feel like the 300m is a good choice but I am not sure about a 600m. I have really never run these distances so I am not sure what to expect - Any suggestions are welcome!!
