Kind of weird: I’ve never really trained for a half marathon. Of course I have raced the distance many times, but it’s always been while preparing for a full, or a random add-on to training for shorter stuff.
So I have decided: Spring 2011 will be half marathon season.
First up – the Yuengling Shamrock Half Marathon in Virginia Beach on March 20:
Followed by – the Charlottesville Half on April 9:
No spring marathon for me this year, and I’m totally okay with that. Scheming about the fall though – stay tuned! 🙂
Today’s EAT: was kind of lame. Who ordered the Ghetto McMuffin?
This is what happens when you are really craving McDonald’s for breakfast but are too lazy to get in your car and drive there.
Today’s DRINK: was excessive? We had dinner with some new friends and there was plenty of wine. But not wanting to be all like, nice to meet you and I am going to take a picture of that wine bottle now, I refrained.
But I didn’t refrain from consumption…which is why this is being written the following morning instead of the night of. Although I’m sure that would have been entertaining.
Today’s RUN: was pretty darn awesome. Gorgeous weather, crunchy leaves on the sidewalk, and legs that are definitely happy with lower mileage!
Right calf is still kinda cranky, but I’m giving it lots of Stick action. (TWHS!)
Today’s QUESTION: What’s on tap for spring 2011 for you – any race plans?
