I spent a lot of Sunday relaxing in my favorite spot with a few upgrades, the cozy pillows, as well as my water bottle (really always with me) and a good book. Currently I’m reading The Glass Castle.
Also, the most important part of the night before a long run, is obviously going to a burger place with friends for dinner! We went to Wheezy’s. They make kinda smaller burgers, not quite slider small, but almost, so you can order a couple different kinds. Of course I had 2 burgers and fries, veggie burgers of course. And the best one they make, I promise, is called the White Trash burger with thousand island, crunchy iceberg lettuce, and american cheese. It kinda tastes like a Big Mac. So good. Then of course we went to Fro Yo. It was directly next to the restaurant, so I literally had no choice.
This morning I did 12 miles with an average pace of 8:36. YAY!! I was so worried I wouldn’t be ready for my half marathon in 2 weeks, especially when the hamstring issue happened. So now I feel so much better and ready to Rock n’ Roll!! ( haha get it? Rock n’ Roll half? yea I know my jokes aren’t good. ) I’m just so happy that I now feel ready.
I finished it off with a really easy yoga sesh tonight to stretch it out, and I’m about to go to bed because I am completely exhausted!
Also thanks for the comments about the morning running!! Glad I’m not alone and that we are not all superhuman morning rockstars, which is what I envision all runners, besides myself, to be.
Anyone else doing the Rock n’ Roll SF? Other Rock n’ Roll races in different cities?
