Ugh. I have a race coming up on Saturday and I have not run in a stupid amount of time. So, Saturday should be fun! I’m calling it the Family Fun Run 5k as I will be running it with The Husband and The Husband’s brother. I was really excited about this race when I signed up. I figured I would be in really good running shape and maybe even get out to the course once to check it out. None of that happened. April just slipped right by me. More illnesses, a ridiculous amount of April birthdays, the birth of my neice and planning my son’s first birthday party took up the little free time I have. Plus my energy levels felt non existent. Excuses, right? I’m sure I could have pushed myself to get out there, but I really just didn’t have the drive and I don’t want to kill running. I want to be able to enjoy it and not burn myself out for no apparent reason, so I guess I took the attitude that if I am not feeling it, I am not feeling it. The run will come out tomorrow.
The plan this week is to run as much as possible leading up to the race in hopes that will prevent Saturday from being a complete and utter disaster. I also received a super fancy Garmin watch for my birthday! I want to really get to know the watch so I can use it for the race. Saturday should be interesting to say the least. I think I’m just going to focus on the family aspect and just really enjoy being out there with some fam! Getting together to do a race just doesn’t happen much, if at all – so this will be great!
Race report to follow. If I live to tell about it.
