No PR for the 5k yesterday. But we both finished in 29:10, which is still better than I thought we would do given the fact that the entire course was up one hill and back down another. I'm not kidding.
Good things that came out of yesterday's run:
1. I got up early and ran for once.
2. I realized that the neighborhood that we ran in (which is right across the street from where I live) would be a great place to train given all of the hills.
3. I got up early and ran for once.
6 days until ING and I am not prepared one bit. Well, I am prepared as far as I've got the shoes, I've got the legs, I've got the motivation. But, the training? Well, I don't have that. Oh well. I will finish. I'm sure of that. But I am pretty positive that there will be no PRs in it for me.
I'm having such a hard time committing myself to long runs. It seems like I just don't have an extra few hours in the day to crank out 10 or 15 miles. So, I settle with 5 or 6. Cause at least I'm running, right? I thought DST would be my friend but I've been so busy with other stuff that it hasn't really been helpful. So, yesterday I came up with a bright idea. I work a compressed work schedule, where I work 5 days one week and 4 the next, so every other Friday I have off. I'm going to try and start scheduling long runs for that Friday because I usually don't have anything else going on on that day. It will only be every other week, but it's better than not doing them at all.
I think I've settled on my next marathon. Ridge to Bridge Marathon
Have a great day!
