A year ago today I ran the Laguna Hills Half Marathon and PR-ed that ish! I try not to put any pressure on myself for races because running isn’t easy for me. Some days I have good days, some days they’re bad. That day all the stars aligned and I felt great! I felt fast and I had a ton of energy!!
So, I am sad I didn’t run it today (especially because the start is less than 2 miles from my house!). But, I know this weekend’s back to back half marys are going to be super hard on my body. I decided to do the smart thing and skip a race down the street from me <—that took a lot of restraint.
This morning I set out for a tempo run. I tried a new route because things are getting boring and stagnant up in there. Instead of my normal route that is uphill-ish on the way out, I went the opposite way and went down the incline to start. 3 miles out, 3 miles back.
Running and Eating in the News:
Man collapses near finish line of Ottowa Half Marathon. Luckily, a few spectators jumped in to help!
Ben and I are headed to a BBQ at my mom’s. I should probably throw together something to bring…
Question: Working or playing today?
