Should I or Shouldn't I

So I am thinking of trying to run some of the Pre course on the weekends.

On one hand it would probably be good for conditioning with all the hills and such and I wouldn't be in for such a shock on race day.

On the other hand. I'm scared that if I do horrible running that stretch that I'll get demoralized pretty quickly. I'm still only at 3 miles of running as my base and 5 weeks to raise that as much as I can.

Dear Prefontaine 10K: You and your Agony Hill scare the crap out of me still. :P

long time no post! but still out there running!

So long time no post! I have been a super slacker blogger, but still running! I'm in my THIRD cycle of Couch to 5K (this should show how slackery I can get, haha) and just finished Week 7 yesterday. One more week and I'm complete, and then next month I do Round 2 with the Prefontaine 10k. Woot! Figure I'll try to do some 4-5 mile runs on the weekends from now on so that 6.2 won't come as quite a shock, can't hurt!

I won some Mizuno Wave Rider 15's from Long Legs on the Loose that should be arriving any day now and am super excited to get them! I run in super cheapo Nike Initiator's I got for under $20 on clearance at JC Penney so I'm stoked to see if a pricier pair really do kick some running booty or if it's overpriced hype.

Also, I did my best time ever yesterday by swapping my regular rockmyrun running mix out for a Rammstein only mix. I thought that was funny! Might need to make a Rammstein playlist for the Pre ;)
