What happened to this mornings blog post? I went to bed at 7:30 last night with Brooke (I normally write my morning posts at night) and I even chose sleep OVER GOING TO COSTCO… I am expecting a phone call 2 seconds after my mom reads this because she will be so worried about me. Another thing leading me to go to bed so early was because of the FMW recall has sent me into a deep depression. How could they do this to me?
Thank you everyone for watching out for me and warning me on twitter and emailing me about this terrible news!!!
I waited 4 days to run (that is a miracle that I actually followed what I said I was going to do) and had a nice 7 mile easy run this morning. I am going to keep my pace nice and easy for a while because according to this chart from Running Times it is a smart thing to do:
I definitely felt like I pushed myself in the San Jose half so I will probably take the 14 days of easy running to heart before I try and do any faster runs. From that same article:
I guess that means I will be taking the WOMEN’S NIKE HALF MARATHON easy this weekend:)
My cutest friends that we stayed with when we first moved to N. Cali had an extra bib for the half-marathon and offered it TO ME!!! I blacked out for 60 seconds due to my excitement. I have ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS wanted to do this race! I can’t wait to run through the streets of my favorite city.
I haven’t ran up a hill (I guess the city is kind of hilly or something?) for what feels like 12 years and I want to make sure I keep it at a recovery/easy pace and so I am purely doing this to enjoy every second so expect at least 500 pictures of the course.
In case you were wondering what I did this morning besides go for a run:
I am now a sheep expert.
Now to find something for lunch!
Anyone reading ever ran the Nike Women’s Marathon (or half)? Who is running it this weekend?
Anyone running a different race this weekend?
What race have you always wanted to do?
How long do you take off after racing hard?
What are you having for lunch… I need some ideas quick!
