Friday!! I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend planned. Tomorrow I hop back into racing, which will be my first race back “healthy” in 6 months….yikes! I am thankful to ease back into it at a race with friends and one of my favorite distances at the Run/Walk for the Kids 8K- Norfolk
The only other 8K I’ve run was the Neptune 8K last year before the Chicago Marathon. I ran a a 5:57 pace that day. I am not in that type of shape now as I was peaked for the marathon but I’m hoping for another good day tomorrow. Workouts have been going well. Mileage has been on par for four weeks now. I am doing a very mini taper where I kept my schedule normal then just backed off yesterday and today (day before race). It should be a great start to my summer racing schedule! Here is my race day outfit:
I am not sure which shoes I will wear yet. I prefer the feel of the Nike Streaks but the Lunaracers are softer and safer for my calf. The calf has been pain-free though so how long do I need to stay “safe”? I’ll decide in the morning.
Have a Great Weekend Everyone!! Let me know if you are racing or training so I can wish you luck!
