Hiiiii! How are you? The Dog Days Half Marathon is coming up fast and I’m over half way through my training cycle so I’ve been checking in and evaluating my progress so far.
Note the new headphones, the hubby won some major husband points for these babies. The weather has been very hot lately and I’ve been “lucky” enough to get in those hot runs I told myself would be great training for this hot race.
I give myself a B for sticking to my training plan.
I was following it really closely until I got sick a few weeks ago and missed quite a few runs. I got back into it but was behind in my weekend long runs. I’ve always been pretty happy if I run at least every other day and I’ve achieved quite a few consecutive days. I definitely get an F for cross training. But we have gotten in some greats hikes lately so I’m counting that.
I’m feeling good about where I’m at right now and even though race day might hurt a little more than I would want, it’s going to be a good day. I am starting to think about time goals. I think it’s important to have more than one goal. Of course I want a fast (for me) time so I will make that my A goal, but I also want to set a B goal and a C goal. My C goal is usually something like “don’t die or poop your pants”. 🙂 Stay tuned for those goals.
Now let’s wrap up the weekend!
*I got with my favorites for some sushi to ring in year 31 a little bit more before heading back to work after our trip to Basalt.
What kind of goals do you set for yourself in a race?
Any sushi fans out there? What’s your favorite?
