They are now predicting that we’ll see snowflakes at the Snowflake race in Long Beach this Saturday. I have no issues running with a little snow, my biggest concern is that they’ll yank us off the boardwalk again because of slippery conditions.
I’m enjoying day one of my two-day rest period prior to Saturday’s event. Not counting the New Year Hangover 5 mile (fun) run, this will be my first race of 2012. I’m hoping that I’ve trained correctly for this race.
Four mile races are similar to 5K’s, except that they require a little more strategy in terms of parceling out speed. Where 5K’s are basically fast runs that get faster at the end, a 4 mile race requires a little more pacing.. I’m looking to make my first mile my slowest, and pick up speed as I go. The condition of the course will factor in as well. I’m still hoping for the boardwalk, but you never know.
