Training for the Bolder Boulder 10K – Week 6

Happy Rounded Pi Day!

3.14159 = 3/14/16. 🙂

Another warm week made it easy to get outside for a run over the weekend. Unfortunately, I couldn’t talk Tobey into joining me for the 2nd week in a row. Fortunately, he’s a youngster and still has plenty of time to train and get ready for Memorial Day!

I’d like to set a goal of 55 minutes for Tobey and I to run our 7th Bolder Boulder together. We ran it in just under 58 minutes in 2013, so this pace should be easily in our reach if we both train and feel good on race day. I’m taking my training this year more seriously than I have in years so I feel like as long as I can keep my body in good shape along the way, I should be good.

Another nice save for the week with 2 runs in a row to finish the week off strong on Saturday-Sunday. Had my best outdoor run so far with my wife pacing me on a bike out in Cherry Creek Reservoir. Tobey resisted running with me this week but I’ll hope to get him back out there again this next week.
