Yesterday was my scheduled 10 miler for marathon training - but it was also my friend, Leslie's, Kickin' Asphalt Cupid Virtual 5k. I fully know that 10 miles is not a 5k, but running more is always better. Right?
If you are ever looking for a race you never need to go far. Just check out Kickin' Asphalt. Those girls have a ton of virtual races lined up.
Then today I was able to run Rachelle's Virtual 5k today for her Grandma's 96th birthday! I had 6 easy miles on the schedule - again, not a 5k, but a run is a run!
|The guys started out at Joe's house, came to our house for water and fuel, then ran back to Joe's house - there were reports of 50 mph wind gusts in Augusta. I'm thankful it wasn't me out there running!|
While he was tired, he actually took me up on the offer because he did have 6 easy miles on the schedule today (just like me!)
Running on the treadmill today was perfect. Not only did I not have to brave the brutal wind, I got to run with Ward, in a tank top, in front of a fan, while watching tv. I also got to talk to Ward and that was fabulous. I also realized that I can really force myself to slow down for recovery runs on the treadmill. I succeeded in slowing down - 6 miles in 57:51! Woo hoo!
Have you done any virtual races? I have a few more to do.
