I got my long run (30.5K) in this past Sunday. It was a bit of a struggle since I was still recovering from Quebec, but I managed to hammer it out. I did what I call a "hybrid" run. A bit of trails, road running, and even two laps on the track (I wanted to add some distance on to my run at the end). The variety helped, and today I am just taking a rest day.
Earlier in the summer, I ordered a few running skirts from runningskirts and I absolutely love them. They are soooo comfortable. I have a hard time wearing shorts now. I feel bad for the guys that they can't wear them, then again, eww! Too many images there!
I have had running skirts before, but these people make the most comfortable running skirts around. They have built in undies and the waist doesn't rub at all. I ran in one yesterday and had no chaffing.
I decided with two marathons coming up, I might as well splurge on another skirt to add to my skirt rotation. Here she is:
Gotta love the polka dots. I will get a black tank to match. A marathon is tough, so you might as well look co-ordinated during profuse sweating!!
I also have decided to get a Nike + band. Marlene has being using one now and recommends it, so look for me to post my runs in the near future. I figure it will help me keep my pace more often!! :) Now what else do I need.....
Still on the fence about whether Scotiabank will be a half or full, but I am solidering on as if I am running the full. On tap this week:
Tuesday: 6k (1 mile time trial)
Wednesday: 6K recover
Thursday: 12K tempo
That's all for now. I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for reading!
