So…tomorrow I have a 10K race to run.
I have never attempted 6.4 miles in my life.
I just figured out where the race actually IS.
And up until today, I hadn’t gone for a run outside since November.
Talk about being prepared, right? Or waiting ‘til the last minute… Sheesh!
I wasn’t sure whether or not I should run today, but seeing as though I hadn’t trekked it outside in, oh, 5 months, I figured it’d be worth my while. Shortly before heading out I snacked on a Clif Z Bar.
I figured a quick 3 miles would be good for today, hoping that it would at least get me feeling a little better about tomorrow. But damn that was one hard run!
All I’ll say is…
- It’s a good thing I’m running for fun, not for time.
- Thank god I’m running with some awesome friends to keep me company!
As long as I finish the race, I’ll be a happy camper!
Shortly after running and stretching for about 10 minutes, I showered it up and made some lunch.
A pretty darn fantastic salad comprised of romaine, spinach, cukes, grape tomatoes, carrots, celery, red onion, dried cranberries, fat-free cottage cheese, a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette, and some Fresh Market croutons. Yummers.
After lunch I had a few errands to do, but before getting started, I stopped for an iced coffee from Flavour. Because running errands with iced coffee is an absolute necessity. Especially when your “frequent buyer” card is filled up and it’s FREE.
If you happened to be a little observant today, then you probably noticed that this is not my usual car. No, my friends, I am currently toolin’ around in my dad’s beloved corvette! My dad is out of town for the weekend, and while I was over at their house yesterday, he goes “So, you wanna drive the corvette for a couple days?”
Ummm, oh gosh, let me think about….YES!
I’m not gonna lie…it’s a little intimidating when this thing powers up. And I’m certainly not used to a speedometer that reaches 200. Woah.
But I also can’t lie and say I don’t feel pretty bad-ass drivin’ around in this baby. Hopefully tomorrow, Jay and I will be able to cruise around with the top down.
So anyways…once I got the coffee, I got to work on my errands.
And I also picked up my race packet for tomorrow. Oh boy!
Sure enough it didn’t take long…
…for the Codester to come and scope out the new goods.
Maybe I’ll just attach my race bib around Cody and bring him to the race tomorrow?
Jay’s working a little late tonight, and I was hungry early, so I made myself a quick and easy dinner.
Some fresh cantaloupe, which is super sweet and juicy. I love it.
Along with a grilled turkey, provolone, and tomato sandwich with mustard.
It hit the spot, but I’m sure since I ate so early that I’ll be in need of something a little later…
We currently have Edy’s Slow Churned vanilla ice cream in my freezer.
I’ll be up bright and early for tomorrow’s race, so tonight’s going to be pretty low key. Ohh boy…wish me luck!
I’ll be sure to give ya’ll the recap tomorrow!
Question for the Evening:
If you’re a runner…do you prefer to run indoors or outdoors?
AAAAND, any tips for tomorrow would be super duper awesome.
