One Week Until The Philly Rock-N-Roll Half Marathon..
Sunday, September 08, 2013
I have hung in there with my training. I hit 10.5 miles last week. My left knee is bothering me somewhat so I am putting bio freeze on it nightly. I think the shot I got is wearing off, but I will be okay for the race.
I am running with two teachers. This is one of the teacher's first half marathons. I am really excited for her. She told me I inspired her to run. That makes me feel good.
We are going to have fun with this one. There is a rock band every mile and it is a flat race. My younger son is going with me the day before. We are going to stay at a hotel right by the starting line. I dont want to deal with race day traffic in Philly. (there is an Eagles game and Phillies game the same day as the race!) We are going to hit the expo and he wants to go to Fogo de Chao. He is a weight lifter and practices jujitsu so he loves steak and lots of food.
There is a rock concert after the HM so we all should enjoy the weekend.
While we are in Philly, my husband and other son will be in Baltimore for the Ravens game - so we will all be busy!
Tomorrow I am going to run 7 miles, then 3-4 the rest of the week. I have been walking a lot more too now that the weather is cooler for the Bostons.
I am more mindful about what I am eating and tracking my food again.
