At the end of this week, I’m driving down to my aunt’s house in Maryland for the Hot Chocolate 15K I’m running in D.C. on Saturday.
I’m really excited and a little nervous for this challenge and am dying to see if my training has helped at all.
Like I mentioned before, I’ve been following Hal Higdon’s training plan with some modification: yoga instead of stretch and a switch of Monday and Tuesday run and strength. All has been going well, but as the run’s got longer, it definitely required a big push from my end. This past Saturday I ran between 7-8 miles (I was supposed to run 8 but didn’t track my distance so this is a guesstimate). After runs 6 miles or longer, I tend to feel a little out of it for a while. I’m not really hungry but I know refueling is important.
Hopefully, the tempt of chocolate after Saturday’s race will help me out a little. 😉
This week’s plan:
Monday: 3 mile run and yoga
Wednesday: 3o minutes cross-train
Thursday: 2 mile run and strength
Saturday: RACE DAY!!!
