Today is a rest day for me, which is definitely a good thing after yesterday’s run. I had a great 5-miler Wednesday and followed it up with 7 miles yesterday—2 mile warm up, 2 x 2 miles at 8:13 with 3 min jog in between and finished with cool down until I hit 7 miles. My legs are worked, so they are very happy to have a day off!
Tomorrow I am going to be a running buddy for the Shape Up RI 5k benefiting Girls on the Run RI! I cannot wait! As a running buddy, I will be matched up with a girl and run/walk the entire race with her. I love that they do this—it’s like having your own running coach/personal cheerleader. Girls on the Run is truly a wonderful group that I am so happy to support.
Later on Saturday, the hubs and I will head to Boston for dinner and a play at the Huntington Theater (an awesome Christmas gift from my dad and stepmother!). Then it’s a long run on Sunday again. I am kind of nervous for this one. I am scheduled for 10 miles again, but 6-9 are 8:30 or faster. Hopefully my tired legs will be able to kick it up a notch at the end of the run!
I feel like I am slowly but surely getting back to baseline in my training. It’s a good feeling!
Who’s racing this weekend?
