Can I call it a trend yet? Two days in a row I woke up at 4 am, hit the trail at 5am, and knocked out a trail run before work. Today I was able to run 2.25 miles with about 650 elevation gain. Today had a few more hikers climbing in after me so I hit some traffic on the way out. Overall another good run and I'm hoping these climbs will help me next week.
As for our race in 3 days. The Fiance went down and grabbed our race packets today. Got our bibs and our event shirts. This could only mean one thing "Its Time To Race" and I'm even more excited now that I have my bib than I already was the past few days. Plan is in place, running the whole race with Mrs Running Schlub to use this as a training run for next week.
In the next couple days I want to try and do an overview of Pat's Run. For those that haven't heard of Pat Tillman and the sacrifice he made for our country, it really is an amazing story deserving of everyone to tell and I truly am honored to participate in the run this year.
Sleeping in tomorrow and running tomorrow evening. Plan is to repeat the 4 mile speed work on Monday. So once again I'll be cryin and moanin on Friday.
What are some of your pre race day rituals? What work out in the next few days are you dreading or looking forward to (rest day does not count)??
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
