I know the only way to get better is to take care of myself so I'm trying to slow down, go to bed early and eliminate stress. All three are pretty tough right now but I'm trying.
My 5K race is October 19th. That's lots of time to kick this cold to the curb and do some much needed speed work.
As for other races, I feel a little lost without a long distance to train for. My friend Leighann actually suggested a virtual run with our run club. Basically we could all pick the distance we wanted to run and then meet, along the route, and eventually all end up running together. I think it's an awesome idea! I would love to do a winter half as long as it isn't too
cold or icy (I don't love running in either!!)
We have done virtual races together and I've always enjoyed them!
I'm also thinking about applying for the NYC Marathon lottery and maybe even the Chicago Marathon for my 2015 goal. If I'm not having another baby (for now) I may as well distract myself with something else I really want.
In other, completely un-related, news my little guy turns TWO tomorrow!!! Heads up.. A long post for him is coming tomorrow!
I'll leave you with this photo I've seen a few times now. It makes me laugh because it's so true!!
What are your training for?
Do you run when you're sick?
Anyone want to come to NYC with me?
