My Peachtree Number Arrived

It’s that time of year. The weather is hot. The days are long. And the packets for the running of the Peachtree Road Race get mailed. I met my goal this year of being in time group 1A. That means I’ve run a qualifying 10K road race in under 50 minutes in the past year.
Could I do that now? I’m not entirely sure. My training for the last 6 months has been entirely endurance based. Furthermore, my change in companies and increase in responsibilities has kept my volume a little lower than I would’ve liked. But all in all things are going really well. I expect to be under 55 in both the upcoming Possum Trot 10K and Peachtree Road Race 10K. I’m not going to push it with Ironman being so close (37 days from today!). This fall I will work on my speed and see about sustaining those 7 minute miles across the full 10K for next year.
