I cannot believe the Fort2Base race is a month away! This will be not only my first time running this race but also racing 10 nautical miles (11.5 miles). I didn’t exactly follow a training plan for this race but instead used one that I created based on the book “Run Less Run Faster” to train for my half marathons this year. Each week of training consists of a speed workout, a tempo run, and long run. In addition, there are three days of cross-training and one rest day. Simple right? I have a hate/love relationship with speed workouts and really love my long runs. Lately, I’ve been running along the lake which has been amazing.
I did my best to follow my plan but just like everyone else, I had some good days and bad days. Hydrating was not easy for me. I am a 1st grade teacher and there was no way to hydrate throughout the day. I took small sips here and there and drank more water after school in the comfort of my apartment with a bathroom close to me. Of course it is different now that I am on summer break. Eating healthy was not a priority for me. Well, maybe it wasn’t that bad but it could have been better. I had no control over portion size and ate whatever I wanted. I finally had a wake-up call and am working on ways to eat healthier. Not easy but at least I am trying.
There are many reasons to sign up for this race and I hope you join me on August 25th. Sign up today!
Just Keep Running!
