Summer project: speed

With my next marathon not until December (the California International Marathon), I’ve quite a while until that training cycle begins.  So, I’ve decided to take the time this summer to work on some shorter distances and speed.  I’ve got a couple of 10Ks lined up and I’ll finish off the summer with a half marathon.  After running better and better half marathons as tuneup races during marathon training, I’m curious to see how I can do when I actually train for the shorter race.  Should be fun hard.  I also know training for shorter races will improve my strength when I do begin training for CIM.

To the hurt locker we go.
