Somehow in the last few days I've gone from having one upcoming half in February and one in March to two in February on consecutive weekends (plus a 15k).
I just had to add the A1A Half to my plans...It's a birthday gift from my parents, so how could I say no?!
|I was originally interested in this race because it's on my birthday. Then Meg took this photo of the A1A medals while at the Key West Half, and that definitely reignited my interest ...And all my friends/family are enablers, apparently!|
I haven't had a long run since November. I planned to do nine miles this weekend, but Matt's brother flew in unexpectedly from LA and the only time we had to see him was Saturday night and Sunday morning, so that threw a wrench in my plans.
|After breakfast Sunday morning.|
|Matt and Scott are both spitting images of their dad. The Kearney genes are strong.|
(It was totally worth it. We haven't seen Scott since last winter.)
I think maybe I also have a bit of a mental block. I almost feel like I've forgotten how to run long! But I need to just suck it up and get it done...I have four weeks until the A1A half and I'd like to be in good shape for it. I mean, I'd like to run the entire race and half fun doing it!
So this week I'll need to get back on track and find some motivation despite any distractions. I've been consistent with my weekday runs; now it's time to get serious about my weekend runs, too!
How was your weekend?
Leave me a little kick in the pants. I need it!
