Since it is Thursday, I’m linking up today with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud Thursday.
Here’s what I’m thinking about today:
- Half Marathon #21:
Still clueless on how to train for and run one of these. I’ve run 20 – some well, some not so well, some injured, some healthy, some flat, some hilly, some in the heat, some in the rain, some in the cold and wind.
So what will happen for this one? No clue. I don’t even know the course.
I plan to enjoy. Stay healthy for my October 9 half marathon. Hopefully finish under 2 hours 30 (or not).
I do know that my long runs have been miserable. I ran them alone and the weather was hot & humid but I’m not a good training runner. That’s why I race so much.
And I’m better at the short distance. Maybe I should stick to 5ks. Nah. And miss out on race-cations and that finisher medal…
- New Job:
The good news is that I am employed. As with any new job, there is a learning curve. This one is pretty steep. Hopefully, my brain isn’t too old to learn it all.
The bad news – less $, fewer vacation days (1/2), eventually a lot of travel and long hours.
This doesn’t look good for running and race-cations.
- Trying to Fit it All In.
Run 4 days a week… tennis once a week…occasionally go to the gym…mah jongg on Fridays…spend time with friends and family.
Now on Wednesdays I volunteer with the STEM runners (victims of domestic violence.) It just started this week. It doesn’t start until 6:15 pm so I will have time to run before.
On Mondays, I will be running with the Troy Turkey Trot Training Group.
That leaves Thursdays for running and the weekend for a long run or race or both. OY!
- I Think I’ve Created a Monster.
Guess who signed up for the Dash to the Finish Line 5k in NYC?
Yes, Anna, my Russian friend. She is flying in from Moscow!!!
Happy Running! What’s going on in your life ?
