C- 0 miles (4 miles yesterday)
So my original plan for this week was run 4 miles on Monday, run 2-3 miles today, take Wednesday off, and run a hilly 5k for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, my plan did not factor in the fact that my butt would still be sore two days after pilates..
|Love pilates, but moves like this one are literally kicking my butt|
So, in order to meet that 5k goal, I had to find another race.
I found a promising race in Boston in early December, but it's a bit overpriced. Still, D kindly agreed that we'll race it when I'm up there, so I'm designating the Boston race my will-break-my-PR race. More on the December 5k later, but D thinks that a crowded start to the race may be the answer to my running-the-first-mile-way-too-fast inability to pace.
|Not running this 5k, but D and I ran it last year with some great friends. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone in the Hartford, Ct area. It's a great short run to keep you motivated during the winter.|
Still not enough races..
So two 5ks on the race plan, and I'm already eye-ing another short race. This is one of the few times of year when D and I aren't training for a long race, and I suppose I get a bit carried away with the small races- but I'm OK with that. They're fun, easier, and relatively cheap. Besides, 'tis the season!
|A monument to an addiction..|
Anyone know anything about 4 mile races? :)
