Ready to Run!

This will be a fairly short post as I have been busy getting ready for my two runs this weekend, one of which includes an overnight in the city. I spent some time packing, making sure I have everything need, and doing a few household things.... Laundry, dishes.

I also really, really want to get up early tomorrow morning to at least run for 30 minutes. As I have mentioned before that depends on how well I sleep. I can already feel the excitement for the weekend building which usually means I don't sleep well. I'm hoping that by heading to bed early I'll have time for my body to relax so that I can drift off to sleep at a decent time. The way I've been sleeping lately, I'll need to in order to get up early!

I am definitely ready for these 5Ks. They're not long races but I love doing them. One benefits a charity. One is a costume race, which I am super excited for. Actually that one isn't even a race. The 5K for the event isn't timed. I'm a little bummed about that but oh well. I'll have my HRM so as long as I remember to hit the button I will time myself.

I am hoping that by running tomorrow morning I'll have time to recover for Saturday morning. I am feeling the soreness tonight. My legs have been working hard this week! I'm sure I'll be just fine but it's better to have some space between these things. I'd like to set a new PR this weekend but if I don't, that's okay. I will strive for that on Saturday. With no official time for Sunday's run, I (probably) won't feel as much pressure but I will still try my best.

After tomorrow's run I'll be back in track with my half marathon training. The weekend run should be a four mile run so I will be a little short but that's okay. I'm getting an extra run so I decided that works for me. Depending on how early I drag myself out of bed, I might have time for a four mile run in the morning. I'm not holding my breath but we shall see!

I suppose that's it for now. I was going to ramble about something but maybe I will save that for tomorrow. I'll try to post run recaps as soon as I can. Being that I'll be in the city on Saturday night those may not come until Sunday or even Monday. Hopefully sooner than later! :)

Hope you've all had a great week thus far! I for one am so glad (for multiple reasons) that the weekend is almost here! I'm ready for it... My runs, fun in the city, and to be away from the craziness that has been work this week!

Do something fun and healthy this weekend! It's good for your physical and mental health!
