Admittedly, this has been a bad couple of weeks running.
After the 10 for Texas (which was a GREAT run), I got in a good 3 miles on Monday for recovery, but the speed work on Wednesday had to be cut short for a plethora of reasons. Then I went down with some kind of stomach bug. Then Tuesday was the first day I felt good enough to run again, so I got in a really good run that day. Class on Wednesday ran long and cut out that run. Company came over last night and precluded a run. This morning I overslept my alarm and didn’t get out to run. Tonight I’ve got a fall festival thing and likely won’t run (I might elliptical, though). Tomorrow is the day before the half marathon, so I might only run 3, if I run any at all.
This has been a bad couple of weeks.
But I’m STILL going to go hit the half marathon on Sunday and see what happens.
The timeline will go like this:
5:00am, wake up
5:30am, eat—egg, toast, peanut butter, banana
6:00am, head to downtown.
6:30am, head to the starting area, mill around for a little while, chat with some real runners.
10:30am, church. Here I get to be the liturgist, so the run needs to 1, go well enough that I can finish in less than 3 hours (shouldn’t be a problem), and 2, not be so exhausting that I can’t stand, sit, and be coherent while reading the scripted cues.
This will be a fun weekend.
So, the question is, even without really rigorous training over the last two weeks, is IT in me?
I think it is. I’m so ready for this. That antelope better be well rested.
