I honestly cannot believe it’s Wednesday already. Where does the time go?!
Last night I had what you might call a perfect night. I got in 3 easy miles and then watched TWO all new episodes of The Mindy Project : )
I also looked up 5Ks that are going on in my area this month and was really disappointed. The selection is already really sparse and it’s only April! Last year I think there were still a handful of races to choose from leading up until mid-May. I know I did The Color Run the first week of May last year… although that was pretty much the last event in Fort Lauderdale until October-ish.
If I’m going to PR before the fall, I need to get rolling…
Can you count a PR if it only happens during a regular run and not a race?
Personally, I think the answer is yes, although it never feels as exciting as when you PR crossing a finish line.
Okay, so I don’t know if this is going to sound completely ridiculous or not but I am SO EXCITED to start marathon training next month! Adam bought my entry into Portland for Christmas and I have thought about the race every week since then.
It’s the same kind of crazy excitement I felt leading up to the start of my half marathon training last year.
I’ll never forget it … I ran The Color Run on May 5th and then I started my first half marathon training plan for the Fort Lauderdale Half on Nov 9th. In case you are wondering, yes, I did start wayyyy too early. I absolutely jumped the gun in my excitement.
My plan at the time was to do my training plan TWO times before the race, hence the need to start training early. I felt like I would be super prepared if I did it twice. Obviously I was a little bit crazy, and as soon as I made the smart decision to start working with a running coach last June she was like … let’s not do that : )
This time I am not heading into training with any crazy ideas!
Ohhhkay, and just a quick pic of Cecil playing his favorite iPad game before I go!
He’s too cute/smart!
When is your next race? Will it be a fun run or a PR attempt?
Make any ridiculous running plans/goals when you were a beginner?
