8 weeks means that we are only 2 months away! I seriously can’t wait, I’m excited both about the trip to Disney World and running these races. And this week’s training felt really good. In spite of the holidays, I managed to get 4 runs in, and one of them was a long run.
On Monday I did my run on the treadmill. Good pace, and felt pretty good. Glad I was able to squeeze this run in despite all of the pre-Christmas stuff going on!
I switched my days around a little to do my long run on Wednesday, Christmas Eve. I knew the weekend would be filled with family time, and at least for the first half of Christmas Eve the rest of my family was working. So I took advantage of that and went for a morning run. The good news is that it was 50 degrees out. The bad news was that it was raining lightly, but steadily, the whole time. I was pretty done by the end, mostly because my feet were squishing so much from the unavoidable puddles. But it was my best pace time ever for a longer run, so I’m definitely happy about that!
Friday I did a quick 2 mile run on the treadmill. Great pace for the ‘mill, so no complaints there!
The next day I also managed to squeeze in a shorter run before a 3 hour car ride. I’ve been lazy today, so I’m really glad I got to it when I did, and with a good pace too!
