Spectrum 10K and Training

I have not blogged in awhile! 
Lots of fun training has been going down...
Here is a quick little recap.

Spectrum 10K Race 39.43    1/73 AG, 9/467 Female, 30/791 Overall
This past weekend I was in St. George training and this race conveniently fit right into the training :D   

Smaller, super friendly race.  Organized well with the buses getting us up to the start.  (There is no real place to warmup at the start of the race so I would suggest doing your warm up at the park and then getting on the last bus up to the start.)

Miles 1-3 felt great.(downhill) First sub 6 mile!  Mile 4 the inclines in town start and got me in the zone... just told myself to hold onto the uncomfortable effort. When I turned the corner and saw the finish line clock under 40 I kicked hard and finished strong! PR
Splits (5:50, 6:27, 6:18, 6:38, 6:35, 6:34, 1:21)

Teresa has been upping the duration and intensity of my 
and I am loving Every.Second.Of.It

Putting in some yardage!


Spending some quality time with Rocky! Trainer sweat fests... hill repeats... tempo efforts...time on the St George 70.3 course... Loving it!!
