Week in Review and I'm racing this weekend.

I ended April on a good note and started May strong. My April total was a monthly high of 64 miles, the highest since last October!

A recap of last week:

Tuesday - 5 easy miles, 9:04 average pace

Wednesday - off

Thursday - 6 miles in torrential downpour, middle 4 at 8:06 --> 8:00, 8:10, 8:04, 8:15 actual

Friday - off

Saturday - off

Sunday - 12 miles on the Rail Trail with the girls (Stacy's birthday!), 10:17 average pace, also in heavy rain

Really wish I remembered my visor.

This weekend Jen and Jill will be heading to Ragnar: Cape Cod, Stacy is tapering for the Sugarloaf Marathon, and I'll be running a trail race! 

The Murph is a 5 mile race on the Whiskeag Trail here in Bath. My work schedule changed Saturday so now I have time to run my second trail race since high school cross-country. 

My current dilemma is figuring out what shoes to wear! I might pull out my old Mizuno Wave Precision 13s out of retirement for this one. They are what I wore when I did a trail race with the girls in October 2012. But they are pretty old (they were my first pair of Mizunos) and the soles are quite worn with 300+ miles. My other option would be my older pair of Sayonaras. They only have a little over 200 miles on them, but the uppers are so riddled with holes, I never wear them anymore. I'm just wondering how they will be as a trail shoe. What do you think?
