Week seven is done and I did not run all the miles I was supposed to, shame on me. I totally made this week up! Monday I did one more mile than my schedule, I was feeling good! Tuesday for the Intervals, I fell one mile short. I went to the gym way too late. Wednesday I went to a concert and did not run. Thursday I worked all day so was not able to make up my Wednesday miles. Friday I could have run in the evening but I had an early run Saturday so I didn’t. I know I have so many excuses… Saturday I was ready to run my 18 miles, I was planning on checking out from the group run after 14 and then run 4 more on my own. But one of my coaches who had read my blog LOL told me that it was a good idea to postpone the 18 miles to next week, so I agreed. In a way I’m just postponing the inevitable, 18 miles scare me so much!
This week is not bad, not bad until Saturday that is! Monday:3 miles, Tuesday:4 miles, Wednesday:5 miles, Saturday:18 miles!
The one thing that has me a little concerned is that I finally found the pace and time limit rules. There is this bus that follows the 15 minute mile pace limit (my pace) and if you fall behind the bus the traffic is opened and you have to move to the sidewalk to finish the race, you have until 7:30 pm to finish but running on the sidewalk. OH BOY! I can already see it! “Hey, I’m walking here, I’m walking here!”
I know I’m nowhere close to be ready for this race, but I honestly can wait for it! Only 33 days left! Have you seen this awesome video?
