Just thought I would give an little update on what is going on in my life. In my last post, I said I was going vegetarian, just for a week, just to see what it's like. Well, it's been 18 days, and I feel great! I'm gonna keep with this for a while I think. It's not as hard as I thought it would be, and I made it through probably one of the hardest, most meat centered holidays, the 4th of July. I think the best part of this is the money we are saving. Not only is meat expensive at the grocery store, but also we have stopped going out to eat as much. Not knowing if a restaurant is going to veggie-friendly or not, it just makes it easier to stay in and cook!
Half marathon training is in full swing now. It feels great, and I finally feel like I am making progress in my pace and in my miles. In a matter of two weeks, I ran my worst 5K to date. Then turned around and ran my best 5K, AND PRd twice (unofficially) on my normal running route! So it's been a great past couple weeks for me :)
I've also been going over my tentative race schedule for the next few months, wondering if I can squeeze one more race without over doing it. I have a half on Oct 2nd, and as soon as I'm done with that I'm in full marathon training mode for Miami on Jan 31. There is a half marathon that falls two weeks before Miami (that fits perfectly with my training miles) that I plan on doing.
Here's the race I've been considering, there's a Ragnar Relay Series. 185 miles, 12 person team, 24 hours from Miami to Key West. Each member runs a total of 3 legs of the course. It sounds AMAZING! I would love to get a team together...but it's Jan 7th and 8th. (3 weeks before the full) I'm wondering if I go through with it, if I might upset my marathon training and not do my best there. Ah I just love racing so much! Too many options, so little time!
