Yesterday's training run was a 2.25 mile race rehearsal, but the results left me feeling a little sad. I only averaged a 9:30 min/mile pace. :(  Now admittedly, I've never really found the race rehearsals to be 100% accurate predictor of my pace. I think this is because it isn't ever under the same mental conditions that a race is.  I suspect my race time on Sunday will be roughly the same as my last 5K. All I can do at this point is not stress about it and just make sure my nutrition is good this week.

I called and signed up for a pilates with weight training class starting on September 22nd. I'm feeling a touch of boredom with my current cross training exercises, this should help mix it up.  I think I'm also going to start alternating my circuit training workout with the deck of cards workout.  I will put up a post tomorrow detailing the rules of my deck of cards workout. It looks like a really good way to keep my workouts constantly entertaining.

I took a look at the weather for race day on Sunday. Seems to be a high of 90 degrees in Concord, NH. Oh boy!
