I have not been training like I should. Or much at all, if I am being completely honest.
I was derailed by the snow, then vacation, then midterms when, as much as I hoped it would not happen, WHAM, I got sick. In class on Monday, I was tired. I could have put my head on my desk and slept until 6 in the morning (and we had to watch a
My body does not ache, so I am going to attempt to run after work, even if I just take it slow and easy. I have just over a month until the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler and while I know I can do it, I am just nervous about actually doing it. I want to run sub-two hours (yeah, I know, I’m slow—but slow is the new fast, didn’t you know?!) and I do not want to finish dead last! Time to kick it in to high gear this next month and get out there.
Upcoming race schedule:
3/14/10 - Shamrock 5K in Baltimore MD – would like to run a 34 min 5k (shut up, I know I am slow!)
4/11/10 – Cherry Blossom 10 Miler in DC (goal is sub-2 hour, even if it means 1:59:59)
4/25/10 – Pikes Peak (10K) in Rockville MD (goal is sub 1:10—ideally 1:07)
5/2/10 – Broad Street Run (10 miles) in Philadelphia, PA (called the fastest 10 miler in the country, so I am hoping to come in around 1:40)
After these races, I am not sure about what I will do next. I would like to run the Baltimore Half Marathon in October and participate in the Marine Corps Marathon 10K again, but those are in the fall. I need to get my stuff together and find some good races over the summer and get myself registered.
Anyone have any good suggestions or are you running these races?
