Day Five Report
Saturday, August 25, 2012
I had another "on track" day today, and I even fit in a glass of red wine with dinner (but 3.5 oz. is a small glass!!!).
I ran in a 5K for my town's Summerfest today. I made the mistake of chatting it up with friends waiting for the race to start and not getting close to the start of the pack. I forgot that the race has a gun start, not chip start too, so I was walking for the first 0.1-0.15 mile before I realized that I wasn't going over a sensor to start, and that I better start running....doh!!!!
I decided to have more of a fun run at that point, and slowed down a couple of times to chat with people I knew, instead of passing them by. I am not sure what my time was, it isn't posted on the website yet, hopefully it will be tomorrow.
After I did the 1 mile fun run with the family, which turned into a 0.1 mile run and 0.9 mile carry after my (30 lb) almost two year-old fell while running. I think he would have rum the whole thing if it hadn't been for that fall!!!
I ate meals at weird times today because of the race, but stayed on track. I was tempted to snack this evening, but instead drank a can of sparkling water and painted my toenails (which are ALMOST recovered from my marathon...just lost the last one today!!).
I have a running question...... I am doing a half marathon the last weekend of September and in mid-October, do you think it would be too much to do another one a week later?!?!?
It would be 3 half marathons in a little over 3 weeks.
I am doing a long run with my running group in 8.5 hours, so better get to sleep!!!!
Have a good Sunday!!!!
