I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for all of your awesome words to me after my ace this past Sunday. I know it was not a planned race for me and I didn’t have a goal time for it, but I am however, incredibly glad I did it. You guys are so awesome for all your kind words!!!!!
Hills are speedwork in disguise and those 18.6 miles were 100% full of hills. On Tuesday, I almost completely skipped my run. I was still feeling “meh” after Sunday. I hopped on the treadmill for a planned 7 miles, and could barely get through an 8:20 mile. BARELY. It was still kind of light outside so I quickly got dressed and headed out the door. I’m SO glad I did! I had an amazing run where my fast splits felt easy peasy. I love when this happens! I think that “running” this race verses “racing” this race helped me to recover faster. Pre-Stu’s, My coach and I had discussed me running it, and then she ended up saying we should focus on my half on 3/15 and not Stu’s because of the hills. Welllllll she was 100% correct on THAT. In the end it only made me stronger, both mentally and physically. If I can survive that, Boston is a BREEEEEZE.
It’s not even funny anymore just how fast I am racking up cancelled races. Yes, you read that correctly…cancelled races. I’m three for three with my third cancellation being a half I chose for next weekend, the Half at the Hamptons…..
Upon getting this cancellation, I was of course, immediately bummed out. But I found another semi local race that came highly recommended by a few friends, and I ended up singing up for last night. At this point, I feel like a jinx though since I keep having races get cancelled on me!
New Bedford Half it is!
My girlfriend got a bunch of these samples for a race she is directing and gave me a few…has anybody tried them? They are DELICIOUS! I guess they are a healthy runners candy. I need to seek them out in a running store ASAP.
Wore my adorable new capris from Skirt Sports the other night….I love this pattern! I can’t wait to show them off Outside!
Speaking of outside–check out what the jacket I’m wearing does…its 100% reflective so it’s perfect for nighttime running (when it isn’t too cold or slippery out!)
have a great weekend everybody!
Tell me something random!
