Today’s run wasn’t a good one. I was planning on running at least ten miles today but that didn’t happen. I’m not sure what happened or why I ended up getting a bad side ache which made me stop running. On top of that I stumbled and fell due to a crack in the sidewalk around 8.5 miles. Boy, did I feel stupid lol. I’m not sure if anyone saw. But I had a bad run day. I don’t think I drank enough water before my run and I didn’t carry any. Oh wells. I just hope I do well on my half marathon next Sunday.
I got in an evening run today. I decided to do a 5k today to see what my 5k time was like and I sure went fast! My hard work has payed off. This is my fastest run ever! 🙂
My half marathon is approaching fast. I’ll probably cross train tomorrow and do a workout DVD. Then I have my long run on Sunday. After that it’s one more week and Sunday is the big day!! Getting excited!
Do you have an event coming up or a big race?
I was thinking about running today, once my husband got home from work, but it’s raining pretty hard right now. Oh, wells. I don’t think I’ll be running today. I did a workout earlier today, so I think that counts for something! I’ll probably run the three miles tomorrow. But I was looking at my running stats from SmashRun, and I’ve ran 142 miles so far this year. I guess that’s not bad considering I haven’t been running very consistently until I started training for the Portland Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon. Also, my average running pace this year is 8:44/mile. I’m pretty happy with that! Last year, I rarely got under 9 min miles.
