Training Day… Week 17


April 20, 2010

This is it!! The week I have been waiting for… all the blood, sweat, and tears–well, no blood really, but lots of sweat and tears   {just wanting to sound hard core I guess!}. After last weekend’s running success, I know in my heart I am ready to tackle this thing head on–don’t I sound like the cheerleaders in Bring It On?? hahaha–small joke, small joke.
For this week, I am obviously taking it a bit easier on my body so I can stay relaxed and ready for what’s in store on Saturday morning so this is my training one LAST TIME:
Monday: Rest Day–however, I’m stretching everyday to keep myself from getting sore
Tuesday: Ran 3 miles at a 9:30 pace this morning; did stretches and abs
Wednesday: Rest Day with stretches
Thursday: Last Run: 4 miles at a 9:45 pace; stretches; abs
Friday: Rest and eat lots o’ carbs! {pasta is calling my name!!}
Saturday: The Big 13.1!!!
Sunday: The big payoff day… heading to the BEACH for a whole week!
TOTAL: 20.1. miles
Please say a big prayer for me {and all my other friends runing the race} if you can and keep your fingers crossed for no rain… The Weather Channel isn’t being so friendly with our weekend forecast right now, as it is calling for scattered storms on Saturday, but I’m doing a dance and asking the rain gods to hold out until afternoon just so we can get this thing over with already!
And just because I know you’re dying to know, here is my race day outfit…
even if I am covered in rain, I’ll know I looked cute =)

Nike Running Skort via Dick’s Sporting Goods
 Not to mention a little inspiration does a body good… =)
