Barb at Still Running
Congratulations and thanks to all who entered!
2. This Saturday hubs and I are racing a small, semi-local 5K: the Barrie Spring Thaw. While I had high hopes of crushing my PR, the weather is looking pretty miserable and not at all conducive to doing so...
40 km/h wind = 24 mph
20mm rain = 0.8"
Lovely!!! Once we get to the site and start a warm-up, I'll see just how bad the wind is and decide what to do; I have a 22-miler on Sunday with MRP so I'm not willing to wipe myself out at the 5K if it's not going to be a PR day. I guess we'll see what happens.
3. I have two workouts on deck today. I wanted to allow more time in between so I opted to run my tempo intervals early this morning instead of over lunch. That meant a 4:30AM wake-up. I struggled at first to find my morning-run mojo, but there's something very rewarding about running in the dark for an hour (without seeing another single human) and finishing just as dawn breaks. I forced myself into an ice bath after the run in the hopes of aiding my legs in recovery before tonight's MRP workout. Who doesn't love to sit in a freezing cold tub of water at 6:30AM??
Happy Thursday (almost Friday)!
I hope everyone travelling to Boston this weekend has a safe trip and the experience of a lifetime!
