So, Saturday morning was my last, BIG long run – 13.1.
It my my 4th official half marathon, not a real race, but it counts in my book.
We headed out to my new favorite running spot at 5:30am.
As soon as I got outta the car, I felt the stagnant air and humidity.
It was SUPER hot and VERY humid – yuck.
I started to run and by mile 4, I think I had lost about 3 pounds of sweat.
Sad smile
I changed my shirt and headband by mile 5 – YES, that is how hot it was…
I had the hubby following me, I could get used to having my own personal sag wagon!
My sugar was doing fine and killed miles 4, 5 and 6.
8:47, 8: 54, 8:47
Hopefully that is an indication my training is paying off and my 10k on Saturday will rock!
By mile 10, I seriously thought about quitting.
Yup, I know…depressing.
BUT I fought it out and kept going…
Happy and proud that I finished.

Today is a holiday here in Trinidad…
So, I’m getting a massage and enjoying a fabulous Easter dinner later with friends!

What is your #1 Race Song?

I desperately need a new race mix – HELP!

  1. I’m so proud of you for how hard you’ve trained. You are going to kick some Houston butt.

    My favorite songs right now are so varied: Some Nights by Fun, I Love It by Icona Pop, Hall of Fame by The Script, Dreams by Van Halen.

    I have some slower ones too depending on my mood. Quiet Your Mind by Zac Brown Band is on replay a lot lately.
