OK, maybe sleeping in and running in the afternoon, when it was crazy windy, wasn’t the smartest idea. And less smart would have been wearing shorts too!! (though better than the rains yesterday-kudos to all the runners who ran the 60K in that!) But it seemed as soon as I got going, the wind became a non-issue, and I actually had my best run since the marathon-all 7.2 miles of it. So yeah-I can officially say I’m recovered from the marathon.
Still not quite race-ready just yet, and in fact I’m glad that I didn’t run the Race to Deliver 4-miler today-besides it being notoriously crowded, I heard there were major issues with the corrals (runners being assigned wrong) and baggage (major bottleneck, about an hour wait.) Crazy!!
10K-just run a decent race for once. Under 50 minutes at least…but hopefully under 49. If I feel like I can do damage to the PR, go for it.
4 miler-get at least a 2-second PR 🙂
The nights before each race, I do have plans that involve alcohol. I’ll just have to make sure I stick to red wine, as that has proved itself to be a lucky pre-race drink for me 😉 And pace, pace, pace!!
On a different note, I officially want none of the final 4 on this season of the Amazing Race to win…once again the team I was rooting for fall just short 😦
