This week was better. Much better.
I was still dragging a little bit, due to not feeling great, which was exacerbated by absolutely miserable, rainy weather, but I sucked it up. After all, rain is just water. At some point, I imagine I’m going to have to contend with wet race weather, so there’s that.
I also got an extra burst of inspiration because I was finally matched with my running buddy through I Run 4! It was such a huge moment and I have already connected with my buddy’s mom and we have a great dialogue going. I’m so proud to dedicate my miles to him and his family, and I am so glad that I will be able to run my first big race in honor of them.
- Sunday: rest
- Monday: This was a great day. I ran 3.14 miles in the morning, and then did a 6.68 mile power walk in the evening. So awesome.
- Tuesday: light weights
- Wednesday: 4.11 miles
- Thursday: rest
- Friday: rest (I wasn’t feeling well at all)
- Saturday: 4.33 miles (this was supposed to be a 6 mile run, but I had a hard time getting up and then it was monsooning. I was able to squeeze in these miles between rain storms)
From Monday through Friday, I plan to run three days. I’ll just take it nice and easy, and build in one 6 mile run, just to get it in. And then it’s off to Orlando for the moment of truth.
Now that the big day is almost here, my brain is starting to wrap around the Post Race. I really just haven’t thought about anything besides this upcoming weekend, and now I am comfortable relaxing enough to realize that there are awesome things on the horizon. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Field trips and road trips. New babies (not ours, but for dear friends of ours) and spending time with loved ones. Half marathons and more races and vacation.
The year is flying by, and we have a lot to accomplish, both with running and in our lives.
What are you looking forward to before the year ends?
