Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas... We had a great Christmas eve and day... I had planned on sharing a photo dump of some of my favorite pictures from Christmas but I am at home and something funky is going on with my computer... So... that will have to come later (I did manage to get one though to work)
Sorry all text post below...
I am up EARLY on my day off because I can't sleep - I am beyond stoked about Saturday. The weather is supposed to be 55 and sunny in Springfield, MO and running weather CAN'T get better than that (unless it is 70 and you are running along the ocean;) I am even contemplating wearing shorts with my Pro Compression socks - you know I have had my race outfit planned for 3 months...
I have been keeping up with my running (training) and doing well (fingers crossed) - I hit up 3 miles on my treadmill on Christmas and today I am going to head to the gym to stretch these legs out with a little 2 miler and some walking. That will be all I do until 26.2 on Saturday.
I opened up my Runners World magazine from November and read an article about how long to wait to run if your actual race was cancelled due to weather, and now I am freaking out and a little discouraged. It said that 1 week after or 5-6 weeks after are recommended. It stated that running 2-4 weeks after your cancelled race is not ideal. AGH!!!!!!!!!! That is what I am doing. It stated because there isn't enough time to bring back up the training - ugh.... but I am going for it.... going to give it my all... I need to let that article go... but it is weighing on me.
With all this being said, I am getting a few miles in, packing up, and heading out tomorrow morning. First time traveling with the family for a race - I need to get my packet, eat (of course), and I am taking the kids swimming in the hotel and playing Old Maid, Crazy Eights, and Go Fish in the room until they pass out - or I do first.
Race is at 10 AM (start time) on Saturday morning and then we are driving home afterwards - eeeek! 4 hrs in the car after running 26.2 - any recommendations? I am kind of hoping to just sleep... Well the next time you hear from me, hopefully I will have put 26.2 under these two feet. I will be on IG @missmel_joy if you wish to follow. Have a great weekend my friends and RUN IT!
