Hey y’all… it’s Wednesday and here’s what’s up this week:
To race or not to race that is the question! My issue this weekend is that I have a lovely 20 miler to do on Sunday, yeah me (sarcasm)! However, the race I would do is only a 2 mile race and I feel it MAY be beneficial for my speed at the end of a half or full marathon. They offer a 10k and a 2 mile…I ran it last year and I was first female overall! I love this race because they give out trophies. Listen, I love my medal bling, BUT trophies aren’t too bad to look at either;).
As I stated earlier, I also have a 20 miler to try to get through on Sunday… I’m not going to lie I’m a bit scared. I feel like 20 miles is sooo far and then you start thinking about it and you realize that 20 miles IS far, but if I can’t get through 20 I def won’t get through 26.2. Any helpful hints on getting through 20 miles are welcomed!!!
Also on Sunday it’s Mother’s Day! Most mommies want jewelry and flowers, I want new running sneakers. I’m pretty sure that is what I asked for for Mother’s Day last year as well. I’m hoping to get my run in early, grab brunch with the kiddos (for some reason I really like brunch more than breakfast or lunch), and then spend some quality mommy time with them!
Also, I’m debating doing one last half before my marathon in redemption of last wknd…I have to do a 13 mile run next weekend anyways, so I figure I could run Saturday morning, rest Sunday and then taper the rest of the week! I know this sounds a bit insane but I also only want to do it if the conditions are right… meaning NO WIND and avg temps… I know I know, too many rules but if I’m going to try to redeem myself I’m going to do it right…
