Yesterday my run was physically and mentally challenging. Doing the speedy run the day before left my legs like lead. Mentally I was just not feeling the love. The run itself ended up going ok, but I think it’s time to take a day off. Could I push through and keep going? Yeah, probably, but streaking has never been a personal goal. I love running, but I like my days off too.
Speaking of goals, I’m putting off making any major goals for myself for the moment. I’m going to try and run at least 30 miles a week for August. Not sure how that will pan out as I’ve decided not to run the Madison Mini while I’m home. Wonder if I can manage serious mileage with very few long runs? Not even sure I’ll be that upset if I don’t make it. (I think burning the candle at both ends plus running 13 days in a row has caught up with me.)
Instead, I’ll be setting goals for someone else. Another blogger is
stark raving mad enough willing to let me coach her to the finish line of a local half marathon. So, welcome C.Mom to the MCM Mama posse! We haven’t met yet, but she’s local to me, so I plan to meet up with her for at least a couple of runs. I’m also toying with the idea of pacing her to the finish line at the Wilson Bridge Half Marathon.
So, follow along as I get C. Mom to the bridge!
Administrative note: If you haven’t already, please send me an email with your distance and blog address to mom2shoo @ gmail.com if you are participating in the Mama Goes Masters virtual race. It’ll make it a lot easier for me to link everyone when I publish the participant’s list in a couple of days!
