Final Results!

Time: 1 hour 32 minutes 21 seconds
Mpm: 7:03
Overall place: 33/1021
Sex Place: 31/456
Division place: 5/54

My ultimate goal was to run in 1:30 but this was a much tougher course than Lincoln was. I still shaved off nearly 6 minutes off of my time in Lincoln. I'm happy with my performance. This will be my last post to this blog. I am now searching for my next race.....Until the next time..

Nearing the finish line!

Distance: 6.44 miles
Time: 48 minutes 16 seconds
Mpm: 7:30

It was hot on the run, and I ran at an easy pace. But still I was able to put up a pretty good time. With the exception of Saturdays 20 minute run, this was my last workout before the race on Sunday. Tomorrow I plan to cross train for about 45 minutest but then will take it easy the rest of the night. Saturday I have the 20 minute run and that's it...I plan to rest as much as possible on Saturday and carb up! I'll be eating a lot of pasta :)

Morning run!

Distance: 6.56 miles
Time: 48 minutes 23 seconds
Mpm: 7:23

I had to run this morning due to last night thunderstorms. It was nice and cool this morning and I took advantage of it with a good effort. I plan to run tomorrow moning as well; however, I had to work until 7 tonight so I'm not sure if I'll be up to it. If not, I'll run tomorrow after work. Either way I will put my mileage in. It will be my last significant run before Omaha. All I have after tomorrow is a 20 minute run on Saturday. After my run on Saturday, I will do nothing but rest and get as much sleep as possible.(I'll also eat a lot of spaghetti)

Hot on Monday!

Distance: 6.44 miles
Time: 48 minutes 15 seconds
Mpm: 7:30

It was hot on the run tonight, but i hung in there and ran well. My time was better than expected and I felt strong throughout. I ran using my Old Market route and there wasn't much traffic which is usually the case on a Monday night. I run 48 again tomorrow and then have Wednesday night off. I'll probably still do some sort of cross-training though.

Final Sunday run!

Distance: 5.36 miles
Time: 40 minutes 12 seconds
Mpm: 7:30

Nice run for my last sunday workout before Omaha. I ran on weak legs but did well using my Old Market route. I'm only one week away from the race, and I am definitely ready for it. I'll only run 4 times next week so i can be well rested for the Omaha Half.
