Yesterday was National Running Day and even though there was no running on my schedule, I did do a quick 2k to say that I ran on this National 'Holiday'!
Tonight had 6.4k on the schedule....I chose to go slow where I have run the past 2 days and 2 runs on the weekend. Tonight my sense of smell was fine tuned...some random smells were:
- BBQ chicken...yummy!,
- the smell of lilacs as I ran by fresh blossoms....amazing!;
- Chlorine from someone's pool...it is my dream to one day have my own pool
- Apple blossoms
So I mentioned a couple runs this upcoming weekend. The first is the Soul Sisters Race in Dartmouth. I registered for this race the day after last years race as I heard such great things about it. There is one problem this year.....Tropical Storm Andrea is supposed to hit on or just before the race...just wonderful. Not only rain, but wind too!
The 2nd run is: my long run on Sunday 9.6k. Another slow one, and the longest I`ve run this year. I`m a little weary about running 5k Saturday night and this on Sunday...but slow and steady keeps the IT Band pain free.
Well I am off to pray to the rain gods to push this little storm a little bit offshore so we can run in nicer than storm weather.
Happy pre-Friday to everyone...hope your weekend is storm free!
