Just a quick post to say I’m racing a 5k tomorrow. There is money for overall male and female 3 deep, plus nalgene bottles to all finishers.
Today it’s about 70 degrees and sunny. I was sweating just playing with Currie on the playground. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be a high of 49 and rain. Could be worse…
Today I ran 4 miles as my pre-race run. It was almost 60 degrees at the time, but there was a cool breeze so I wore a short sleeve Oiselle tee, roga shorts, and my arm warmers slouchy style. I was the perfect temperature!
After the race, my plan is to do another 3 miles of speedwork. Maybe it will be a tempo, maybe it will be a fartlek. Whatever my body and brain tell me they want to do, I’ll do! Should be a good, hard, soggy day of running!
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! I’m sending fast, long distance vibes to all my marathon friends this weekend!
