For all of you who participated in my survey, thanks for helping me decide what to read! I started the book on Friday and I absolutely love it. Like Karen, I can't wait to get out of work to read more!
One of the many previews we saw at the movies Sunday was for the movie version that's coming out this summer. I hope it's a good adaptation.
So, today I decided to take a day off from the gym. Through my injury I've only been going five days a week instead of the usual six, but last week I went six again. We didn't stay up late Sunday night, but it was hard for me to get out of bed Monday morning. Even though I felt much better after the workout, I knew I needed a little extra sleep. Tomorrow I plan on trying out another run since I still haven't felt any pain from the mile I ran Saturday.
I really don't know how realistic my goals of running a 10K race in June and a half marathon in July are at this point, but I'm going to try. I have to take it one day at a time, try my best and see what I can do. I want to sign up for the new Portugal Day Race in June, it sounds like it could be a lot of fun, but I don't want to commit myself to another race (and possibly lose more race fee money) before I know if I can run the first race in June.
So, this might be an odd question, but do any of you runners just run for fun without racing? I started running by signing up for a race and setting a goal. As long as I've been running, I've been running races, and I don't know any different. I'm starting to think that maybe I should rethink my strategy.
- How many races do you run in a typical year?
- How long did you run before you ran your first race?
- Why did you start running?
Today's workout -
None. Rest day!
