Here we are. It's RACE WEEK! Before I freak out over that, let's take a look back at last week.
GMM Half Marathon Week 13 Training Schedule:
How it actually went:
Total weekly mileage: 11.84
So. Not exactly a stellar last week of training. Over six miles short, plus Tuesday and Thursdays miles weren't very high value. Ugh, ugh, ugh. But! I am happy enough with all of the rest of my training that I'm just going to say Oh Well and move on. It is what it is and I'm not going to let a few bad runs get me down! (Plus I already wallowed for a bit - ya'll just didn't get to hear it!)
And now it's here. Race Week. I will run two more short runs this week, then on Friday morning I will get up, say goodbye to my family, and head to the airport. I am so, so, so excited for this trip . The actual race? Well, I still haven't thought about that, to be honest. I have no idea what pace I'm going to run or whether or not I have a time goal. I haven't decided what fuel I'm bringing, and whether or not I'm going to carry a handheld. All those things will get decided later this week. Right now, I'm just going to try to enjoy the "taper madness" that is slowly settling into my brain, and the fact that I am just four days away from meeting some of the best people I have never actually met in person. =)
What are you excited about today?
