Had another 6 am run this morning with Elya. Even though I loved the last 6 am run we did it didn’t help me enjoy the early alarm.
I have come to the conclusion that if I’m going to do 6am run’s, 3 miles is not enough to make it worth it. I would rather get 8 to 10 miles in and feel like I really accomplished something. But, I needed to be home before Mark needed to get to work, and Elya had to be to work this morning as well. And, the point of today was a nice easy, short pre-race run. We kept the pace under 10 min miles, which is good. I don’ run fast short…I don’t usually kick into high speed (haha) until 5 miles in. Takes me a while to warm up!
I’m going to try and get one more in tomorrow or Thursday, but have a busy few days. So will see what happens. Regardless I feel 100% ready for 10 miles Saturday.
I do find it a bit ironic that it’s going to start raining just in time for 10 miles of Pt. D trails, but that’s part of the fun of trail running. Wet and muddy! I have to dig out my rain running gear…I seriously don’t even know what I have to wear while running in the rain…it’s been that long since we have had any rain to speak of!
After the early start, I came home and was able to shower and get myself put together before Sky woke up, and then it was off to Play To Learn at Charles Wright. It’s a pretty cool program and best part is 100% free!! Even better!
Later tonight is the Justin Bieber concert with Grace and Michelle. I have heard that Grace is beside herself with excitement and I’m pretty excited to be there for her very first concert!
Now I need to find time for a cat nap, or I’m going to poop out at the concert.
