I'm feeling really good about my training up to this point. I even woke up at 4:30 in the morning on Wednesday to run my scheduled 7 miles before work. What I found odd was that it wasn't really a relief to have it done and out of the way. I didn't feel like I had run (brain wasn't awake yet I guess?) and I kept looking forward to the stress relief of an after work run. I'd start to get excited and then remember I had already run. I guess I'll have to deal with it though because I don't see any other way to fit midweek long runs in now that they'll be 8+ miles.
Yesterday was another easy 3 miler. I stopped at the park on my way home from work and ran a paved course of rolling hills. It was great except for the lack of shade in the blazing sun. I was dripping by the time I finished with 3.2 miles. None of that creepy glistening stuff here!
Seriously hot. Look how red my face is!
I was a little peeved when I got home and found that my Team Aquaphor gear had already arrived! It wasn't scheduled to show up until Friday or else I would have waited to take it for a test
drive run. I made due with just trying it on for now. I love the way it all fits and I especially love the colors! I feel so patriotic. Perfect for an Olympic year!
Not that I could ever pass for an Olympian!
So for now I'm going to entertain myself with cleaning my fish tank and maybe doing some actual work while I dream about racing in my uniform tomorrow! Hopefully I'll end up with some hardware to make my team proud!
What's on your schedule this weekend?
