While I had a crappy run this weekend, I also had a glorious 5.38-mile run at race pace on Saturday, followed by free yoga. Alas, I made the mistake of looking at all the overpriced gear at Lululemon and am now lusting over a $100 running top. There's no way I can justify the expense ever, so I'm going to vow to not look at the merchandise again.
I would have loved to have an awesome 10-mile run Sunday, but it just wasn't in the cards. Instead, I'll focus on a little cross training this week, a few shorter runs, rest, lots of sleep, hydration and proper nutrition. I'll also be working on the mental aspect of this race, visualizing a strong and painless finish with less than two hours on the clock and planning our Kentucky jaunt.
Mantra: I have run the miles. I have followed the plan. I have laid the groundwork. I will own this race!
