NO running again yesterday. My knee was feeling a little bit stiff so I am giving it some TLC and resting it up. I really hope all this extra rest is helping it!
I wasn’t sure if my running coach was going to come to the half this weekend or not, but she emailed me to say she would be there. I am so happy! Whenever I visualize crossing the finish line I always see her there. She’s been such a big part of this journey for me.
I told her that I would really like it if she would hang out at mile 9 – that’s usually where I need a little extra motivation.
This will be me in just a few days:
I really think getting a running coach was the best decision I made during this training. She really helped make me a stronger runner. I think I could have prepared for a half on my own, but I don’t think I would be as ready/confident mentally or physically.
With all this extra rest time my mind has been going a mile a minute regarding Lilypad Candles (my candle company). It is definitely keeping me very busy!
Each time I pack a candle up to ship out to its new home I feel like I’m sending my baby out into the world! haha
I really think the biggest perk of making candles is that my home smells so good ALL the time. I’ve probably said that before, but it’s so true! : )
Have you ever had a running coach?
If not, have you ever thought about getting one? Why or why not?
