So, remember the other day when I said I wanted to find a HM to train for? To help me get out of my funk? The only one I could find on a Saturday was a 2 Ĺ hr drive. BUT, then I realized I wasnít looking in all the right places.
Yesterday I found one Ė on a Saturday! Ė only 1 Ĺ hrs away. But it is on March 24th. 8 WEEKS! Can I be ready that soon?
You bet I can!
Itís official. Iím registered.
I already laid this out on my C25K Graduates team, but Iím so excited Iím going to go over it again.
Iíve been feeling like I missed out on so much running while I was sick & then when I felt better I couldnít get back into it, BUT in reality I didn't miss that much. Here are my LSR miles since December:
1/14: My drought happened & I missed a LSR
I only missed 2 LSRs (I'm not going to count that 4 on 1/21) & 2 shorter runs. Thatís it! What felt like ages, really wasnít.
Iím glad I kept up with longer distances after my HM. I can sooooo be ready to have a great race on March 24th. 8 WEEKS!
My other HM I ended up dehydrated & had a horrible race. This time, I know how to prepare & I plan on finishing 20 minutes faster.
Another great thing is hubby is going to be there. He wonít be running, but heíll be there!
Iím so excited!
Oh! I almost forgot - I'll be running over the Mississippi River. It's an out & back so I'll cross it twice. I think it will be flat everywhere except going up the bridge each time.
Tomorrow is a run day - think I'll have a little pep in my step?
