I started my student teaching/long term substitute position this last week. This addition to my schedule is on top of a part time job at a restaurant and school. I am one busy lady. Last week, I had something to do M-Th in the day and in the night. Friday, I had a break…I only had to do something during the daytime.
Needless to say, my training is affected because of this. From now until December, I won’t be able to run outside that much. Instead, I find myself waking up at 4:30 a.m. to get in my run on the treadmill in the garage.
Including my race this past weekend, I ran:
33.1 miles in
My initial goal for the race was to run a sub 45/45 flat and I came in at 45:19. Even though those pesky 19 seconds got in the way, I am very proud of my time.
The race course followed almost of all of my favorite training routes that I run by myself and with the Pacers. I guess that is a perk of running a race super close to your house 🙂
The first 2 miles were uphill; the uphill was mostly gradual with about 3 actual hills. Next, the course had about a mile of a downhill stretch. The course finished mostly flat after a small hill around mile 5.
With about 1/2 mile to go, I approached the turn and I overheard race officials say, “she is the first woman.” Even though I knew I was leading the women, it was such an amazing feeling to hear those words.
After the race, I ate pancakes with my friend Allison and her husband Gary and watched the awards ceremony. I felt so strong during the race and recovered quickly. I am so ready for the Long Beach 1/2 next Sunday. Hopefully I finish that race as close to 1:45:00 as possible.
