you knew someone was gonna have a blog post with that title, right? me first 🙂
yeah, tomorrow is the Brooklyn Half-Marathon. considering the ungodly hour i’m gonna have to wake up (bus @ 5:45 am!) it really feels like it will be “no sleep til Brooklyn.”
this was a pretty light running week for me…spinning classes Monday and Wednesday…meant to run yesterday morning but couldn’t wake up 😦 Tuesday night was speedwork…we got cut a little bit of a break as the workout was 5 x 800 at half-marathon pace. all of mine were in between 3:46 and 3:55…oops. didn’t feel hard though, which makes me believe it was less than 800 meters that we ran…
carbo-loaded a bit last nite…a bunch of us had a very nice dinner at Tony’s DiNapoli on the UES…good food and quite a bit of wine too 🙂
as for Brooklyn…as previously mentioned, i’m not taking this one über-seriously, pretty much only an excuse to do a long run outside of Central Park, as Queens is my goal half (later in the year, more time to prepare, I like that course better.) you *know* i’m sorta being lax about this one when i care more about being able to wear a cuter running outfit (please let it be shorts weather!) then I do about my time 🙂 so whatever happens, happens…my plan is to just run steady on the flats, then try and pick it up in the park…a “progression” run of sorts. and to listen to some great music 🙂 and basically, to try and have a better experience than last year’s race. good luck to everyone else who’s running too!!
non-running note…i sorta made an important decision about something this week…not gonna post any details now, but i’m just hoping if all goes well, there will be good news in the next month or 2… (if anyone who knows me “off the blog” really wants to know, you can ask me in person/via email/however else…)
