I’ve got a race tomorrow. A race that until very recently, I had forgotten that I signed up for. A race that I signed up for in my sub 2 NYC Half haze. I wanted to race it again and I didn’t want to chance the lottery, so I signed up for a few races. Then I forgot about them.
These things will happen. Now I am running a 10K in Queens.
I’m going to be bold
I’m going to be crazy
I’m going to push the envelope
With any luck that means I will run fast
Very fast for me
No I haven’t been doing speed workouts, but I’m still going to go for it
Last year I ran the Queens 10k in 1:00:47
My 10k PR is 57:08
So I thought why not go for 55
Crazy, I know!
I’m not ready
I’ve been running slow
I’m in a rut
Maybe this is what I need. I really think it is.
I may crash and burn
With a little luck and some unicorn magic
I’ll never know unless I try.
Now I’ve put it out there and you know too.
If I crash and burn, at least I will have tried.
At least it does not look like it will be that hot tomorrow. It seems that the Queens race is on the hottest day of the summer.
