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!
Hydration is my biggest issue, too. It's so HARD with teaching. It's not like you can just go to the restroom whenever you need to. Gggrrr. Keep up the good work, girl!
Sounds like a good set up for training! Good luck on the journey to getting your goals set for running and health!
It I have to go really bad then I give my kids bathroom time so I can go too. The girl's bathroom is next to the teacher's bathroom. Or I ask another teacher (not that many around since I am in a corner in the basement) to cover my class while I take care of business.
