I’m less than 2 weeks out from my fourth half marathon and the training is almost done! I really enjoy the program that I use because I still can push myself but don’t feel like the running is that crazy where it controls my life.
Wednesday—Ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill (10:54 pace)
Thursday—Ran 4.5 miles on the treadmill (10:52 pace)
Friday—Step Up Dance Revolution Workout
Saturday—Ran 9 miles on the treadmill (10:41 pace—yippy!!)
This week will be my final week of high mileage and will conclude with a 10 mile run on Sunday! I’m super excited about Little Rock Half Marathon on Sunday March 2nd largest medals…it will give the Mississippi Blues a run for its size! I’m excited about the expo (I’m so spoiled with the Shamrock Shuffe Expo and Rock N Roll ones), but hopefully I can score a few good items! I’ve also signed up for the pre-race evening Pasta Party (much easier than finding a place to go eat to carb load beforehand) and I’ve also gotten the VIP treatment for race day (private potties, gear check, pre and post race snacks/beverages, massages, and a photo). Both of those extras were $25 a piece, which was pretty reasonable in my book and now I won’t have to worry about dinner while in Little Rock or bringing extra Gatorade/water/snacks with me to the race while trying to find the shortest port-a-potty line.
The hotel that I’m staying at provides a free shuttle to the expo, pasta party, and race. This will be very nice so I don’t have to worry about paying for parking on race day or at the expo. Plus I’ll be surrounded by other runners who are just as crazy as myself, so I can find out about other awesome races around the country in my quest to run the 50 states 🙂
Only 10 days until I leave for my EPIC adventure to Little Rock!
