GOALS for the Miami Half on Sunday
You may have to admit to yourself that you have a bit of an Amazon problem when you come home after only being gone for two days and this is waiting for you.
If you’re around my age PLEASE tell me you got that reference and just sang the rest of Mailtime song from Blue’s Clues in your head!
Ah, the good ol’ days!
One of the boxed items that arrived was my RW Cookbook!
Thank you to everyone who commented earlier this week with your cookbook recommendations. The RW book ended up with the most votes so I went with and I can already tell I am going to like it.
Any book that starts by describing me so perfectly (“runners love to eat”) is my kind of book!
Today I was planning to do a whole post on Miami Half prep since the race is this Sunday, but truthfully I have not done anything to get ready yet!
I kind of, sort of have an idea of what I’m going to wear:
Who needs a top anyway?
My goals? Well, let me just throw ’em out there:
A.) 2:59 (I achieve an exciting PR)
B.) 3:05 or less (I get in a decent training run)
C.) Finish with a smile (I finish half marathon #4)
I wasn’t planning to go for my A-goal this time since I had been dealing with a calf issue, but the weather is going to be SO NICE on race day that I don’t know if I can pass up the opportunity to try for a PR.
This time next month when I’m running the A1A Fort Lauderdale Half it could be 80 degrees. Heck, YESTERDAY it was 80 degrees! This cold front that’s rolling in and bringing the temps down to the 60s on Sunday is really too good to be true.
I don’t know if a PR will be in the cards on Sunday since my longest run in the past two weeks has only been nine miles but I’ll give it a try!
Have a great weekend!
Anyone have a BIG run on tap this weekend? A race or a really long run?
