1. I am really looking forward to my race this weekend. It has been more than a month since I raced (New Year's Day). I am hoping it won't be too cold or icy. A girlfriend is going with me to keep me company and hit a couple of outlets after. Plus Target which we DO NOT HAVE in Vermont!
The picture is from this race a couple of years ago. Last year when I ran this I had a PR for a four miler.
2. I had 3 very different workouts this week. Two were on the treadmill. During the first one I had a cold and felt lousy lousy lousy! I ran my regular distance but slower and with breaks. I probably could have skipped it but I tend to keep going. I use the rule, above the head you can still work out, below the neck skip your workout. Believe me I have looked on the web many times for advice on working out when you are sick. I don't know if I am looking for permission to continue or to skip it. The second workout on the treadmill - two days later after staying home from work and spending the day in bed- was an excellent workout - great pace and good distance. Then today I had a late meeting I wasn't thrilled to go to. Between school and the meeting I headed outside with my Garmin and wound around the streets until I had run 4 miles. It was brisk but it felt great to be outside destressing before having to sit still and listen to people talk for an hour. I was glad I had squeezed this run in.
3. I forgot to tag anyone when I did my bucket list. So if you haven't done it and wish to please do! Have fun with it.
