Good morning! Its already Wednesday folks. Ever feel like the weeks just fly by?
In the next 8 weeks, the 3cheaprunners have some big runs happening.
Saturday, March 15th, is another MEC race, I am going to do the 10km. This one is happening in our very own town of London, Ontario. This is race #2 of this series for this year. Mike ran #1 a couple weeks ago.
2 weeks later, on Sunday, March 30th, we are all off to the Around the Bay Road Race in Hamilton, Ontario. This is a 30 k’er. A first race distance for all of us!
Another 2 weeks later, on Sunday, April 13th, is the Run for Retina, back in London, Ontario.
I am going to run the ½ marathon with my sister, Miriam. This will be her first ½ marathon and I am super excited to run this with her. I hope I can keep up! She just started running with me about a year ago and decided she wanted this race to be her goal to work towards.
2 weeks after that, on Sunday, April 27th, is the Forest City Road Race, also, in London, Ontario. Mike and Michelle are doing the ½ marathon and I am going to do the 10km.
All 3 of us ran this race last year. Michelle ran the 10km, Mike and I ran the ½ .
1 week later, on Sunday, May 4th, I am running the Goodlife Fitness Toronto Marathon in Toronto, Ontario. This is my 1st Full and I am super nervous about it! So much so, that I want to back out…So please talk me in to not backing out…. I am serious!
With all that supposed to happen in the next 8 weeks, I need to get my butt in gear and get some serious training runs in! I got in a couple good runs last weekend.
1 short run…
Mini reward was wine….
and 1 long run...
My plan is to get 2 more long runs in before the 30 km race, increasing the long run distance by 2.5 miles each time. That means, this weekend, I need to get in a 16.5 mile run. I really need a lot of positive talk to get through this next 8 weeks! I really want to do it and get through and be proud of my accomplishments so I am just going to keep at that positive talk!
On that note! It is still really, really cold here so I keep imagining I am still on the beach in Dominican…
With these 2 crazies!
Have a great day everyone!!
Do you make mini rewards for yourself? Or just big ones? Or both??
What is one big goal you have for yourself right now?
