This coming Sunday is the Cleveland Half Marathon. After my Shred class and my 2 mile run on Monday, I decided to go off the plan and take a 2 days off running on Tuesday and Wednesday. Well Wednesday, I drove for 6 hours from Chicago to Cleveland and I wasn’t in the mood to do any running. But my legs feel more refreshed from my break. I ran 3.55 miles yesterday around my cousin’s neighborhood and got a much needed massage afterwards. My left leg (quad and calf) and hip have been bothering me because of my high mileage and the massage helped tremendously. I feel ready to put all my effort in during my race.
Today I’m going to the expo to get my bib/packet and then get ready for the race. My boyfriend is flying in tomorrow, so I have to pick him up at the airport. I have a 2 mile run also which I plan to do before I pick him up and then I have the rest of Saturday to hang out with my family before we go to dinner.
I didn’t get to post last week’s training yet, so here it is below.
