Home Stretch

This Sunday, I drew up a detailed training plan for the next four weeks.  With the Disney Princess Half Marathon less than three weeks away (YAY!) and the Sarasota Half a week after that, I’m really going to try to stick with the plan.  It includes:

  • One more long run – 10 miles on Sunday
  • Two short runs during each week
  • One day of cross training each week
  • Lots of rest, especially between the races

I’m also trying to get lots of rest and eat well – now is not the time to get sick!

I hit the road for a weekday run today – it was easy to fit in since I was off work today.  🙂

Run Stats:

  • Distance: 3.15 miles
  • Time:  37:30
  • Run 2/walk 1

After my run, I did some serious stretching for about 15 minutes.  I did some usual running stretches, lots of hip stretches (my right hip is still sore), and a few moves from Perfect Post-Run Yoga.

On my run, I ran into Mackenzie, one of the owners of Fleet Feet Sarasota, who was out for a walk, and I also ran into Pat, the other owner, when I ran past Fleet Feet.  I saw lots of friendly faces of people from around my neighborhood and runners I know from Fleet Feet.  That’s why I like living in Sarasota!

My day off was very busy with chores around the house (cleaning, laundry, groceries), so I am planning to relax and watch the Winter Olympics tonight, which is pretty much what I did all day yesterday.  Is anyone else loving the Olympics?  The Husband and I are watching it nonstop!  I like figure skating the best, and the Husband has been trying to watch all the luge and skiing events.
