Yesterday my ASICS FrontRunner teammate Victoria was talking about race distance on her Instagram and it got me thinking…
Life in Florida went from unseasonably cold to record breaking hot, yesterday it was 87F (that’s almost 31C). Crazy eh? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining… All this just means my life has shifted to early morning workouts (waking up around 5am) and early evening bedtimes (around 9:30pm), I blend right in with all the older people here in Florida.
The year is literally flying by so far, I can’t believe it’s already time for me to hop across the pond again. A week from today, I’ll be en route to the UK. I’m super excited to see all my friends and hang with all my ASICS FrontRunner teammates in Birmingham for the IAAF World Indoor Championship. I can’t wait to meet our new FrontRunner teammates (we added 26 new people to the team). It should be a super exciting week so I guess stocking up on sleep now is best!
Training is still slow as my coach really wants to make sure my knee is OK. I’m starting to think it’s always going to hurt… #frustrating It does feel better overall but once I get into the double digits, it starts to ache again. I’m not getting frustrated though, I’m determined to stay the course and be patient because my ultimate goal is my ultra in July.
Having long term goals works for me but I still need those short term ones to keep me motivated. So with that in mind, I found a fun race and decided to involve my entire family. They are kinda excited… I found a super fun St. Patrick’s Day race – a 10K, a 5K and a 1 mile walk/run. I’ll be going after all 3, the Leprechaun Challenge. I’ll run the 10K alone, then the 5K with my husband and then mom, dad and me will finish with the 1 mile walk/run. I’m thrilled to be sharing my love of running with them and of course we’ll all be dressing up… #staytuned
