Wednesday-Rest & house hunting
I am anxiously awaiting the Cleveland marathon that is 2.5 weeks away. It always seems like a training plan goes on forever, but then the day arrives. I especially feel ready to go now that both of my 20 mile runs are complete. Let’s do this! My expectations for the race are to have a pain-free run, get a new PR, and enjoy Cleveland with Kevin.
I bought a new running shirt and I’ve got new shoes to break in for race day. I usually like to wear and try everything that I will use on the actual day on my 20 mile run. I feel like a veteran at marathons by now, and I know what will work for me and what won’t. This is my 4th marathon!
I thought it would be fun to go over some running words that readers might not know.
PR–Your personal record for a certain distance
LSD-Long slow distance run used for training for longer races
Negative Splits-Running the second half of a race faster than the first half
Taper-The decrease in mileage the week or 2 prior to a race
Running the tangents-Staying on a straight path through all turns in a course to run the exact race mileage.
I am hoping to make May an amazing month! I would like to try some new fruits and vegetables this month, make more delicious smoothies, and plan some date nights with the husband. We need a few fun nights away from house hunting and commuting.
What are you looking forward to this month?
