So this morning is the FREwC. That's the "Funnest Run Ever with Chris." Chris is one of my coaches. Here I thought it was going to be 19 degrees, but it's a balmy 22 degrees and with the windchill it makes it feel like 13! The biggest challenge is figuring out what to wear -- not too much. Not too little.
I'll be running the last 6 miles of the half-mar course and "vizzing": visualizing race day. It might be a cold run, but I think it will be really good for me. I'll be on my own, but that's okay. :)
I had a good swim last night.... longer than I anticipated. It was supposed to be an hour, but I wound up doing 90 minutes. I got a little distracted when the gym's pool was full of other swimmers from my club, including 2 of my coaches. When I was done I just watched them plow through the water... it's so wild to watch them move with such speed through the water. When I do my intervals I feel like I look like I'm drowing... all form goes out the window! But I guess that's why you drill, drill, drill.
Tomorrow is what I'm calling "Mad Spin"; 3 hours long, followed by a run.
Oh, I got my legs "stretched" yesterday, too. I think I might be taller now! :) I have 2 more stretching sessions and a massage before the half-mar. I'm hoping the stretching is going to help me out; I am pretty tight. I would love to get in some regular hot yoga... but when? There is just so many hours in a day. I will get it figured out. Keeping flexible is important!
I'm outta here... I will have my icicle report later!
