Rest Day and Half Training out of Town
Today I made my reservations for the biggest conservation/water resource conference of the year. I go every year; it is in Vegas. I will be there for the whole first week of October. Of course that is also a month before my half. As you might expect hubby prefers I don't run alone outside in Vegas. That is usually no problem. They have a big gym at the conference hotel. Normally I just need to do my 3 miles. This time I will be half training and I am usually trying to add a long run in the middle of the week.
I am not a treadmill lover and my schedule at the conference is crazy. I am hoping that it won't affect my training for the half if I just maintain my 3 miles most days and do a long run when I return. I fly back on Friday and we have a 10K Saturday AM. Here's hoping it is no big deal. I do have 4 weeks before the 1/2 when I get back. Also I feel a little less pressure because I got my Peachtree qualifying time at Vinings last week, something I never thought I could do. I still want to hit my goal of under 2 hours.
Hope everything is going well. Hoping I can run tomorrow with less pain. Still feeling my back a little but hamstring seems better. The scab on my knee will just take time. Now my pride...that's another story!
