Merry Christmas Eve!!
How is it that I'm getting on a plane in 3 days to head to Florida???? The past couple weeks have flown by with school finishing up before break (with a bonus day off because of an ice storm!) and now Christmas this week. I find myself making lists and starting to pack, but afraid I'm going to forget something in the shuffle.
The past week was a good one for training once I worked the kinks out. I think I've figured out my shoe issue at least for the race - I'm racing in my new Mizuno Wave Elixir 8s. My race-day outfit is yet to be determined though. Good thing Southwest allows for 2 checked bags :)
Here was my last official week of training.
Monday 12-16-13 RUN 3.1 in 31:45 (10:14 pace)
Tuesday 12-17-13 RUN 1 mile in about 12 minutes. I wanted to get outside after a long day but the snow and ice kicked my ass and I quit after only a mile.
Wednesday 12-18-13 RUN 5 miles in 49:40 (9:56 pace). This was actually two 2.5 mile runs back-to-back as I tried out 2 new pair of shoes. Felt good to get a relatively fast run in.
Thursday 12-19-13 BIKE 5 miles in 21:09 (14.2 mph) then stretching for another 15 min.
Friday 12-20-13 REST (except for walking around the mall)
Saturday 12-21-13 RUN 10 miles in 1:44:44 (10:28 pace). Another long treadmill run and this one went well. Last long run before Jax.
Sunday 12-22-13 REST
I'm excited for my trip and looking forward to the race, but mostly I'm looking forward to getting out of the snow and ice and meeting up with some friends for beers. Can't wait to see Marcia and BethBob, plus some other DailyMile peeps! Gonna be a great time with a little 13.1 run thrown in.
So, it would appear I posted about six times in 2016. Here it is, half way through 2017, and I haven't written a darn thing. In my de...
