B-Rabbit drove me to the track at his old high school this morning. I ran 8x400m and it was a killer. There was hurricane winds and my legs felt like they were going to fall off with each step. Today was my 5th day in a row of working out which explains a lot. Tomorrow I will do some cross-training to give my legs a rest.
It is Wednesday (literary Wednesday) and that means I am supposed to recommend a book to you. When I go on vacation I have a hard time picking one book to take with me. Thoughts will race through my head - What if I don't like this one book? What if the back cover is lying and it is actually not as good as The New York Times says it is??
So before heading off to vacation in Florida, I borrowed a total of 5 books. Last night I just started reading Airframe by Michael Crichton. I can't really say its good, but its much better than the one I started earlier in the day that was just putting me to sleep! Its tough finding a good book these days! So really I have no scoop on a outrageously good book to read, maybe next week!
On to my dilemma or should I say new plan/idea:
While furniture shopping yesterday, the salesman asked me if I was a runner. I replied yes, thinking that I must really look like a runner now, but in fact he heard me mention to B-Rabbit that I wanted to go to the track this morning for my workout. Well he told me about a 5k race that was being held nearby this Friday night. The wheels in my head began to turn as I contemplated if this was a good idea.
Well I could run this 5k Friday night, it might be fun, its a flat course....hmmmm.
The only thing is that I need to get my long run in (8 miles this week) and that leaves only Saturday or Sunday. Saturday morning might be tough because it will be about 12 hours after the race. I really would like to do this 5k on Friday but the long run needs to be worked out. I would run this 5k on Friday instead of the one on Sunday. So once again I need your advice.
