Looking Forward to a great weekend

Last night I ran 2 -it was 90 and very humid. The first mile as always was tough the second mile alot better. I was slow 27:00 but at least the legs were waddling. Then I cut the grass -it took about 45 minutes so it was a good final workout before the weekend.
This weekend is the Chicago Distance Classic on Sunday. My running buddy and I are going down Saturday night and have a great night with pizza and run Sunday Morning. Looking foward to it and the greasy hamburger and fries when we're done.

Lost Night

I went home from work and the plan - to run 2 miles easy. The temperature over 90,cloudy,rainy coming in. Changed to plan B- workout on elliptical for 20-30 minutes. That didn't happen either. Sat down watched TV ,ate ,and went to bed early. I guess I just tapered for Sunday's Half. LOL.

Although I am in training for the marathon, I need to taper this week for the half marathon. Last year I feel like I barely made it. This year I would like to enjoy it more.
I was very sore after the Indy half in May. I think with the miles I have under my belt now, I should feel a little better. Next week will be the final push for the marathon.

Monday's Suck

What a great week-end. I ran 8 on Saturday and the weather was perfect! Sunday I felt so good that I biked for 30 minutes. I need to taper this week for the half marathon on Sunday but that will be hard when you feel good. Haven't checked the weather for Sunday yet. Hopefully cooler. I need to decide if I will run with my fuel belt and MP3. Not much entertainment at this race.
I"ll run 2 tonight and tomorrow then bike then 2 on Thursday.
