It’s officially 25 days until I’m in Disney World, and 27 until I run the Tower of Terror 10 miler! I’m getting very excited about it. My running shoes are getting a bit worn, so I’ll be buying new ones after the race. Then training will start for the Princess Half Marathon – well, the Glass Slipper Challenge actually! I actually missed a run for the very first time – I only got one of my 30 minute runs in during the week. That’s what happens when you come back from vacation and jump right back into things!
Tuesday night I managed to get in my 30 minute run after play rehearsal. Not my best, but pretty much on par with what I’ve been doing so I’ll take it!
Friday was a big day though. I did 9.5 miles. My time was good, and within keeping of my goal, but not as good as it had been for my last 8 mile run. I attribute this to two major things: the first is that it’s been really hot and humid out. The second is that I was planning to start my run earlier, around 7. Due to uncontrollable circumstances I didn’t get home til 8, and didn’t get running til 8:30. I don’t like to eat before my runs but I hadn’t eaten since lunch around 12:30, so I was very hungry in the middle of my run, and I know that wasn’t good. But at least now I know that eating about 5-6 hours before a run is my ideal point for evening races!
