The sun is shining, but it wont last long.
I’m gonna try to beat the rain and get in a 1o mile run.
10 miles sounds so intimidating, but with only two more weeks left until race day,
I need to be putting the finishing touches on my training.
According to my calculations I have ran a total 20 hours since January.
20 hours with an average pace of 10 minute per mile is the equivalent of:
9 mini-marathons, or
When you put it into perspective 10 miles is nada. Nothing but a G thing baby!
I am starting to get a little tired though, and my body is feeling the effects. My lower back hurts and my hips are so tight.
When I think back to previous years of training this always seems to happen to me: lack of motivation, body aches, and the dreaded long run.
I’m sure every runner feels this way at some point or another even on their best days.
I guess you could say it’s normal.
The good news is I have a plan 🙂
- Run with grace
- Maintain integrity
- Elevate legs
- Ice baths (brrr)
- Arnica gel
[ If you’ve never used arnica gel get some now! It does wonders for sore muscles.]
5. Epsom salt
6. Rap music: It gives me that edge, you know?
On that note I’m out the door!
