1. I ran 6.4 miles yesterday on my lunch break.. I was DETERMINED to get in a medium long run, something I have been SLACKING on lately. The first 3 miles zoomed by as I thought about my Half Marathon this weekend. At about mile 4 I reached down to itch my leg and realized that my size 10 was less than an inch from a tiny little Gardner snake, LUCKY SNAKE, if I would not have had an itch he would have been Brooks tread. Something is off with my body, I am not sure what it is but I feel very exhausted and irritable.. NOT GOOD!! By the end of the run I was de-stressed and dripping in sweat.
2. Speaking of my Half Marathon I am NERVOUS!! I have not done real speedwork since training for Eugene, other than a couple 5K's... URGH! I am not sure if I have the fitness level to pull off a PR. This will be my 4th Half Marathon. Half #1 HERE was AWESOME, I had no expectations and had a smile at the finish, Capital City still holds my PR. Half #2 HERE was on a drizzly Halloween day, running on the side of the road, barely any other runners and the course was long, the one highlight was that I WON for women. Half #3 HERE I was recovering from being sick for 2 weeks still could not fully breath and the entire course was uphill, I should have stuck with the original plan to pace Amanda, but she rocked without me. So what does Half #4 have in store for me?? Who knows? I am hoping I will get to run it, there is an illness in the family which may pull me away, will keep you posted.
