I hate when I have to do that. Cutting a run short when I am following a plan with a goal in mind. It feels like I am short changing myself - even when I know that I need to take care of my body first. Plus - I've proven I can pull a half marathon PR on one run a week for an entire winter. Running 5 days a week might just be overkill. Perhaps it's time to swap one run out with some cross training to save my legs.
And speaking of Saturday...I picked up my race package today:
- Bib & Chip
- Cotton Irish/Celtic long sleeve tee
- Impact magazine Running Issue
- Assorted flyers
- Water bottle (I was teasing hubby because the sponsoring company whose logo is on the bottle has the same name as him - told him I had it personalized special for him)
