This past week I concentrated on speed and actually each of my speed workouts have gone very well. I was able to do sprints and intervals faster and further than I have ever been able to before. So that makes me happy. Maybe I will just sprint and beat everyone off the line at the start of the marathon and when everyone starts catching up to me I will just fake a muscle injury. :)
Next couple weeks I will be getting back to the long runs again and I am really hoping that they start to feel a little easier.
I have started making plans and booking my room in Las Vegas for my marathon that is coming up. I realized that I have been to and done enough things wrong in Las Vegas that I might actually have some tips and tricks to share with all of you. So stay tuned for a future blog post about that.
I do have a Turkey Trot 5k/10k coming up also. I still am undecided on which distance I want to PR in yet. Because I am just that good!
In other news, has anyone else watched the new Billy Yang video "Western Time"? It follows Nike Trail athlete Sally McRae and her first run of the Western States 100. It is a good video and well worth 30 minutes of your time. Full video YouTube link here: Western Time. Southern California runners rule! :)
The video got me all pumped up and wanting to enter the Western States lottery that is currently open. I actually almost entered but with my luck I would beat the odds and be selected and I am easily a couple years away from being ready for 100 miles. So I wisely decided not to, or did I? Muahaha.
Ok. I better end this post here. It is already random enough. I guess I just am glad that the weekend is finally here. Woohoo.

OK, really. I am ending this post. Have a great weekend.
