IT DIDN’T RAIN!! ok maybe a few drops here and there, but overall the weather was *perfect* for our races today. 55-ish and overcast, no wind, and most importantly , no rain.
So, I ran at my happy little pace, walked when i needed to , and finished in 29:17. a 9:25 pace (including the walk breaks) Not even close to my better races, but you know, it’s a time and that’s better than sitting on the couch. Right? Right. This is a good starting point, I’ll just look at it that way.
Rowen’s tot trot went as to be expected. He refused to put his number on (GJ snuck it on his back, haha) and was very reluctant at the start line. But GJ ran with him, and once they took off he was all smiles…until the girl at the finish line tried to put a medal around his neck! He was NOT having it! Oh well, someday he will learn to covet the hardware 🙂
Mommy & Rowen, and Ro’s medal
So, post race…legs feel great, but I’ve got a nagging headache. I know for a FACT I don’t hydrate enough to be running and nursing an 18 lb 5 month old. I need to work on that. The other half of this training battle will be, without a doubt, my nutrition. Healthy eating pretty much went out the window since Kain was born. Tomorrow is day #1 of my 30 week training plan for the marathon . I have each week written out detailed to the day. I’m super excited 🙂
