Up for the challenge (10k race tomorrow)

Tomorrow is the time for my second race this season. I’m really excited as always just before a new race. This week I’ve felt strong and full of energy and I feel that there’s a possibility the race will be something I can be proud of 🙂

On the other hand I’ve never been in the area where it’s held and don’t know how many and big slopes it contains. That can be a problem.

All my children have had colds this week and I have been really afraid that I might catch one too. I might jinx it just by telling about it, but.. Still no indications of it.

Today and yesterday I have resting days because of the race being held on a Sunday.

Here’s the data from this weeks runs. I will try to change battery in the heart rate monitor. Most of the times it messes with me now is during the first 10 minutes of a run and I can temporarily get it down to the correct hr by pushing the sensor on the left side to my chest for a while. But when I release it it goes straight up again.
