I have two races on February 16th. The first race is a 10K. My running coach is using this race to determine if I am on course with my upcoming marathon. The second race is a fun run, The Hot Chocolate 5K Race. I have raced so little over the past two years, I am experiencing a GREAT deal of trepediation.

I suppose it is good that I have a coach because I would probaby do something really stupid with my training and risk injury or talk myself out of doing the events.

Cross Training:

  • 20 minutes weights

The weather radar said it was cloudy. I ran in steady rain. On the plus side, the temperature was 45°!

Back on the treadmill today. Yesterday the temperature was a balmy 61° but there was torrential rains. Today the temperature is a chilly 19° but there is widespread flooding. School is closed. Too bad I had already started my workout because I missed an opportunity to sleep in a few extra hours!

Workout: Long run

  • The outside temperature was 13°. If I had a short run, I'd be outside. 20+ miles is a long time to keep my fingers and toes warm. Dealing with Raynaud Phenomenon is a hassle at times.
  • I ran for about 3 1/2 hours on the treadmill. Yes! It was fun! My brain accomplished and orginized so many ideas! I focused on my nutrition and hydration. I visulaized my upcoming race course and strategized over the areas where I fell apart last year. I contemplated whether I could truly retire in the next few years from teaching. I realized that my will needs to be updated to include the grandkids and I formulated a children's book idea to author.
  • I ran a pace of 11:20 which was faster than the 12:35 pace that was on my training schedule. The entire run felt light and carefree.
