The quest for the sub-24 5k is being put on hold temporarily...
My pre-race workouts were exactly as they should've been last week. But that 5k I was supposed to run on Saturday? That turned into a home loan appointment at the bank... I have no regrets about skipping the race.
I was hitting paces in the 6s during my track workouts leading up to this race, and race-day weather was PERFECT.
Unfortunately my timeline for making the big move just got moved up to May instead of July. (Read: I move in 2 months, not 4. Yikes!) So lots of pieces need to come together in the next 8 weeks. That bank appointment couldn't be postponed.
Racing has to take a back seat.
(On top of that, my right foot has been saying "go back to pool running" for a few days... It's about time I listened.)
Saturday: RACE DAY!
Actual: A morning appointment with our bank + an afternoon walk (Banking and a walk don't make a very sexy workout combination, but it did feel like an accomplishment to cross a major "To Do" off of the home-buying checklist... Now if only someone will put a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home for sale in DC within walking-distance of my new job...)
Sunday: anything goes
Actual: 5 mile trail run at Fort Pickens
This week's plan:
My new goal for the next two months is to maintain my strength and run for stress relief.
