Next race: April 13 - Half Marathon
I have a little less than 2 weeks before my next race and I'm super excited to run a race again. I don't have a time goal in mind, just to have fun with my friends (this will be their first half). I'm also excited because I'll get to see my husband- he'll be visiting after a month of being apart. Seems like forever already. I don't think he'll run with me, since this is the race he runs for time. But he also hasn't been running that much, so we'll see who has the faster time. ;)
I was expecting to get in a 12 mile run on Sunday, but we only managed 8 miles. The gals I was running with just weren't feeling the run, so we cut it short. I usually run on the treadmill in the mornings, but I ran outside and noticed that I'm a lot faster outside than on the treadmill. Maybe it's the freedom to be able to go at my own pace rather than a controlled one? I'm still sticking to my strength training. It's about 60 push ups, 60 sit ups, squats, lunges, etc. Enough of a challenge, but easy to do every night.
Do you have times when you just can't get into the run?
