Nothing motivates in my training more than signing up for races!!!!
I love this :)!
So, here it is….a tentative race schedule:
March 14th- Westminster Celtic Canter 5k- Westminster, MD
April 4th- Movie Madness 1/2 Marathon- Mount Wolf, PA
May 9th- Richmond 13.1- Richmond, VA- this is the only one that I am not sure about. If I had unlimited race funds I would totally do it, but it is almost 3 hours away so I would need to go the night before.
May- 30th- Zooma Annapolis 1/2 Marathon- Annapolis, MD. SO excited to be an ambassador for this race!
June13th- Kiwanis 10k- Crofton, MD
Possibly the Bird in Hand Half Marathon in September and then…
Nov- Richmond Marathon!!!!!! I LOVED this marathon! Blankets at the finish is a sheer genius idea!!!!
Now ready for this CRAZY (I mean this in the nicest way possible) news…..
My husband is going for a 50k!!!!!….a trail 50k!!!!
I have always thought, and continue to think, that it would not be possible for me to move my foot and farther than 26.2 (or 26.4 in reality) miles.
I think anyone who does it is just crazy……in the you are SO amazingly awesome kind of way!…and a trail race….trails are just tough!
So, I am excited for him and can’t wait to cheer him on!!! He is waiting to hear if he made it into one race (he will know tonight) and if not he has another in mind. One is in March, the other in Feb!
There it is, the race schedule….now time to train!
Speaking of training, I did my first speed work since before my November marathon on Monday. It went as well as could be expected :). Picking up speed work after a break is just rough. I assume it is similar to picking up running after an injury. You wish you could just pick up where you left off, but you can’t!
I did a descending ladder:
1600m – 6:25
1200m – 6:35 pace
800m – 3:13
400m – 1:31
What is your race schedule like?
Have you ever done an ultra?
Would you want to?
Trails runs…yes or no?
