This is it! The last week of training!
Sunday: The weather finally cooperated for a last outdoor run on Sunday. One of my favorite hill friends and I tackled 8 miles. We had planned on a 10:30 pace but wound up closer to 10, even with having to mince our way through some icy spots and taking a few detours.
Monday: Rest. Total rest, not even taekwondo (don’t want to break a toe again!)
Tuesday: The Muffin Run rides again! Over 30 ladies gathered at 5 AM to run through the neighborhood. I did my 3 and actually stuck around to partake of some treats at the end.
Wednesday: After much deliberation, I decided to go to swim class but the coach was like “what are you even doing here??” and greatly modified my workout. I basically just swam laps for an hour. In the evening, I skipped TKD again but had to drop off LR for his competition team practice. I knew some ladies were meeting at the nearby high school for track so I decided to head there for some laps but we were foiled by soccer and band. I finally wound up back in my ‘hood for a quick 3 miles. The first one clocked in at 8:50! And I kept running! At a much slower pace but I didn’t immediately stop and puke in the bushes 🙂 #progress
Thursday: Rest again. I also hit the expo and picked up my bib and a few other goodies.
And, that’s all! Tomorrow is the big day! They are calling for rain but that’s okay, I’m not that sweet 😉 Check in on my Facebook page if you want to follow the race-day fun!
Total training miles: 488.6
