Yesterday I ran twice. Both runs were fairly short which I may need to change in the coming weeks. I want to start getting a little prepared for my 100 on 100 race at the end of August. It is a relay made up of 6 runners in our case. We each run 3 different legs of varying lengths. I was a bit surprised last year at how different it felt to run 18 miles in 3 segments rather than all at once. I had a very difficult time with the middle segment in the heat of the day. So I am going to run twice a day at least once a week and I hope to get in one practice day with 3 runs which I did not do last year.
I thought my evening run was going to be awful as I am an early morning runner when not working. It turned out to be much better than my earlier run with more energy and a better pace. Go figure. I waited until 7 or so and it was not hot or humid which certainly helped! This morning I ran 8 and I can't say much about it other than I did it. Tomorrow I am not going to run and hopefully with weather cooperating I will do 18 miles on Thursday. I am hoping the extra "rest" day due to the two runs yesterday will help with the healing heel.
Sadly I will not be racing this weekend unless I stumble across some race close to home. My husband can't go to recycling and it is way past my turn to go. Our recycling center is open one morning a week so there aren't a lot of options! I have had a little bit of a racing streak going and I would love to continue it but I don't see it happening.
I have not signed up for other races yet in August but there is a race in New York where you race a train that intrigues me. I would like to talk someone into doing this with me but that is unlikely. Anyone out there doing it?
