Hey, hey! I hope you are having a lovely summer weekend!
Here is my running log rundown for the week. Sunshine with a chance of sunshine this week.
Sunday: The in-laws were in town, I so tried to get out earlier than most of my summer runs have been. I don’t want to make them wait to long for me.
I am getting ready for a double half marathon this week and consequently wanted to go at a chiller pace and not go above 10 km. I call it micro-taper.
Monday: I didn’t feel too well today. Headache and stomachache for the last day. Running seemed to help me feel better somewhat though. Doing a slight taper for that half marathon coming up.
Tuesday: Rest day before tomorrow’s half marathon, so I went on a short 3.5 km hike with the family.
Wednesday: Race day! Firecracker Frolic half marathon. 1 hour, 44 minutes. Pretty happy with my time. It wasn’t exactly flat. A few hills that made it hard to try for a PR. Nice, small event. 2nd female, 3rd overall.
Thursday: Recovery run day. My legs felt fine after the race, but I could tell I needed to take it a bit easy. Nice to get out on the trails. Hill work was a good change of pace!
Friday: Rest day before tomorrow’s half marathon. Did a lot of fattin’ out.
My son made me an amazing poster for my race tomorrow.
Saturday: Race day!
This was the first race I ever did six years ago and the third time I have done this half. It is an excellent race course–flat, pretty, well-attended. Pretty stoked to get 2nd place in my category–fifth female overall. Cheers!
