Our Running Lately
Since we both just completed our first race for Spring, we thought we would talk about our running lately.
To be honest, this whole year has been really up in the air and we hadn't really made concrete plans for our race calendar.
The only thing we really planned and trained for in advance was the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend and that was a success.
So far here is what we've done.
1. WDW Half marathon and Marathon
2. Rock N Roll Dallas
3. April Fools - Recap coming soon
For me personally, this past training cycle (for the marathon) was all about
gaining strength and being able to run injury free. I have not felt my IT band injury in several month (Hallelujah!!!), so I think I'm pretty clear here. For this next training cycle I want to try to improve my race times. I'm not looking to PR, but I am hoping to get my times back down to my old PRs. For that reason I am claiming the word "Pain Free" (although I know that is technically 2 words) to describe my running lately. -M
I have been starting to hit more PRs and even placing in some larger races. Sometimes it's hard to talk about these things because I never want to sound like I am bragging or anything. I rarely make it a goal to PR and if it happens it happens but if it doesn't I'm okay with that because I just run because I love to do it. I'd keep running even if I never PRed or won anything. For that reason I am going to use "Love" as my word to describe my running lately. -L
So what's next for us? We want to participate in some smaller races this Spring/Summer and then both of us will be heading to Disney for the Wine n Dine race weekend. We've recruited a friend to run the Jingle Jungle 5k (her first one) so that has us very excited. How has your running been going lately? What are you looking forward to next?
We will be linking up with the gals from TOTR.
