Warning: No Photos In Today’s Post. I know, BORING!
1. After today you will not have to listen to me complain about how hot it is. It’s 100 degrees at my office again today, however, we are going to cool down by 20-25 degrees tomorrow. HELLO FALL! In my defense we DO NOT have A/C. Now do you feel just a taaaaaad bit sorry for me? No? Darn. Nothing like sweating my hiney off in my own house. Free sauna baby!
2. We signed additional docs yesterday to try to get this sale to go through on our house! We are praying, praying, praying that this works out because…
3. I found a stinking AWESOME house today that just went up for rent in a neighborhood we love! It’s close to our church and the beach and would be perfect for our little family. I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself so let’s just hope the sale happens first!
I had a really crappy 4 mile run yesterday. Sometimes runs just plain stink and this was one of them. I couldn’t get my legs to go and my achilles was a bit sore. I set out to do 8 and cut it down to 4 and called it a day. I took today off and will probably just cross-train tomorrow and hope for a better run in…MAUI!
One week from tomorrow I will be landing in Hawaii and enjoying a ONE WEEK vacay!!! This is my first vacation of more than 2 days since my honeymoon 5 1/2 YEARS AGO! Can you says works too much and needs to take more time off?! Maybe that should be my resolution for 2012. Less work more play. I like the sound of that.
On Friday when we land we will pick up our rental car and head to Lahaina. After we get situated I need to pick up my race packet as my first race is on Saturday morning! The Maui Marathon and Half Marathon Warrior Challenge starts with the Maui Tacos 5k on Sat morning and is followed the Run Forrest Run 1 miler on Saturday afternoon (that is going to be HOT. Thank goodness it’s only a mile). I will then run the 1/2 Marathon on Sunday morning (there is also a full but I opted to do the half since I am running two other races). I CAN’T WAIT! I am hoping this annoying achilles issue gets itself in check in the next week.
Do You Warm Up
before a race? I never do (other than stretching) but think that I may need to start doing it to help my achilles get better. I want to be smart about it so talk to me about your warm up.
How long do you warm up before a race?
What is your warm up routine?
I think this will be vital for me in my upcoming short races so I don’t end up rupturing my achilles!
