Week 10: last training run before the race
Well. This is it. Our last week of training before we run more than 13 miles up in the hills this Sunday.
It's been a fun adventure.
I still can't believe I'm about to run this!
After this photo was taken, Anita and I got lost out there on the trails this past Sunday morning. We missed one of the pink ribbons that directed our way.
Coach Marc believes we were gabbing and missed it. He might be right.
But I think we missed it because over Thanksgiving weekend, we ran the same trail but turned right and ran up the road and I think we were thinking we were running the same trail we ran then. ya know... monkey see, monkey do.
But. It was foggy out there. We might've just didn't see it.
When we arrived at the finish line, we received a round of applause. Most of the group was going out for breakfast after the run but we were close to not having that breakfast as they were just seconds away from going on a search for us. We were really that late!
And now fast-forward to tonight.
I am worried about this Sunday. So I ran alone through my neighborhood after work tonight, setting off motion lights all across my neighborhood. Who needed a flashlight?
I set out to run just 30 minutes and by the time I got home, I had run 34 minutes.
It was easy and it felt good.
I really don't know what i'm doing, but I'm about to embark on a half-marathon this Sunday. They say to "take it easy".. so I am.
Wish me well.
