Wise Ones

Thank you all for your very kind words. Losing a pet is always hard and thanks for being patient with me while I expressed my sadness on my blog.

I would be lying if I said last week's training didn't suffer a bit. On Sunday I had 13 miles on the schedule and did around 5.6 and then called it a day. My heart was just not into it and I was feeling off so I called it done early and took it easy for the rest of the day.

Thank you all for your very good advice about incorporating a half marathon into a long run. I will for sure be doing it for this half

On the day of a twenty miler. This will be an early morning if I am going to get in seven miles before the start but I think I agree with you all. Keeping running after the race is over seems like a horrible idea. A much better idea is to finish the race, stop running and then stuff my face.

This race is on the day of an 8 miler, but the day before a 15 miler so I think this will become a 15 miler and the day after will become an easy 8. Does that exist- an easy 8 miles?

And I think I will register for this which also falls on a twenty miler day
even though logistically I am not sure about finding a seven mile route in downtown Chicago to hit up before but running in Chicago is always so much fun that it is worth to put in a little more effort to make it work. Plus  a medal and a pull over. I don't think I can pass that up. Then I only need two more half marathons to meet my 30 before 30 goal. So close yet still 65.5 miles away.

How are your 2013 goals coming along?

  1. Sending some positive thoughts your way. Maybe with the last race you could try to get the miles in before leaving your house? I'm not sure how logistically possible that is. BTW, I'm running the Egg Shell half, too. :)

  2. I love the idea of an Easter-themed race. I love Easter! I hate early mornings, but I think I'd much rather deal with that than running after a race. Smart choice on your part.
