And here it is Tuesday already. I am so excited for the weekend and finally a race, not just any race, but my first 10k! I am pretty much over being nervous about it for now until Saturday morning and at this point just want it to be Saturday so I can do it! I am sure that Saturday morning I will be a ball of nerves and have to pee eight times before the start of the race. I hate running with a bladder that even feels half full though. I think more of the speedy speedys will be doing the 5k since it is an RRCA 5k Regional Championship race. Which kind of makes me want to run the 5k just to see if I can get a PR, I did last year :) What I was really getting to there was that I think I will have a good chance of placing high in my age group. No matter what though it will be a PR! Gotta love that!
I did a short interval workout yesterday that felt really good. I did 6 x 400s with a mile warmup and cool down and 2 minutes easy jogging between. Other than an easy run tomorrow that will be about it for the week, I am not even going to do a BodyRock workout the rest of the week as I want my legs FRESH on Saturday.
I bought some Asics compression socks in town yesterday when I took the kids in to play at the park. I haven't decided if I will wear them for the race or not.
Just curious how many other people race in them and if they notice a difference?
They seem really comfortable. and the aqua in them matches some of my running clothes.
I really wanted the more expensive ones, but couldn't bring myself to pay $60 for a pair of knee high socks.
I also got an SPI belt. I can't seem to win one in any of the giveaways so I broke down and bought one. I wanted it mostly for my camera one runs. Right now I am having to strap on the big old fuel belt every time I want to bring my camera along. The kids help pick it out. I got a blue camo one.
Yesterday ended up being busier than I thought it would be so I guess I will have to catch up with everyone tomorrow! I did see a big snake in my garden the kids thought was pretty neat, unfortunately I didn't have my new camera with me, so I couldn't get a picture for you. Happy Tuesday everyone!
