After a woeful PW at my last race I had decided to give up for the year. Since then (just over a week, really is that all?) I have lost a toenail and continued along my 'happy' weight gain journey. I think there must be a switch in my brain that reacts when I get into this state and today it made me register for the Last Chance Half on Nov 10th. Huge conflict between lazy indulgent self and healthy fit self.
Things I have to do first:
- Get new shoes right now, I wore the heel material out in my Altras.
- Lose 4 to 5 lbs. Running was unpleasant last race. Things were wibbling that had no business wibbling.
- Run 14 or 15k twice before the race.
- Add shorter faster runs during the week, try to find my absent speed.
- Run more!
Harvest Half finish line, unhappy runner:
I also happened to notice some of my favourite people have registered for this race! AND spots are still available, when I signed up today it was showing 320 registered out of 600 places....
I ran this race last year and it wasn't bad. It had snowed the days before, so the pathways weren't perfectly clear, but it's a flat and easy course :)ReplyDelete
Sounds good. The weather could do just about anything right enough! Get the gloves and hats out I think.Delete
I'll be there too! Last year I found the paths to be a bit slippy, but the fairly flat course is very nice!ReplyDelete
Brilliant! I'll look out for you so we can say hello :)Delete
