I tried to get my run in that evening, but a late lunch of Mexican food gave my stomach different ideas. In a way, I figured that was okay. After the craziness of Chattanooga, some extra rest and a shorter run wasn't a big deal.
I have a half this coming Sunday (and I'm hoping to run 5 pre-race, time permitting), so I decided to call this week a mini-taper before I increase my long run back to 20.
Tuesday's run was hard. Not as bad as Sunday's, but still not great. I chalked this up to volleyball starting! This week I had three days of tryouts...45 girls tried out each day!
|A little pigeon pose in the park after my run. I got some strange looks. Also, sweat was coming off me in sheets. Stupid Florida.|
Anyway, I'm on my feet an additional 90 minutes on volleyball days, and I'm feeling it.
Thursday morning I asked Elizabeth, kind of joking, if she wanted to go for a run that evening after volleyball. I was surprised by how excited she was! For someone who claims to hate running, she's certainly taken to it quickly!
|OMG SO SWEATY.|
(Side-note: This half is going to be insane; the race organizer is notorious for cutting corners, so I may need to carry my own water since it'll be hot. Also, there are two huge bridges at miles 10 and 12. Plus, it will be 13 miles of an 18-miler. I hope I survive.)
|My half on Sunday is going to be intense. Luckily I'm not racing it; it's just training.|
Oh, and can we take a minute to look at this?
|I'm sure the rest of you are truly enjoying your fall.|
How has your week been so far?
How's your November weather?
