I may have overbooked the next few weeks – oops!
If you saw my Instagram post though (linked here if you missed it) you know I’ve wasted no time filling that Fall race calendar – after 10/9, I’ll be sure to post an updated training plan and my where-a-bouts.
Are there any upcoming races I should lock in for the Winter? Race life slows down quite a bit, but I’d love to hear what’s going on in your town that I should be checking out. Leave it in the comments below.
Also, let me know if I’ll see you on the race course – I can’t wait to provide a full recap of my first Tufts Health Plan 10K!
I’m sure if you guys have been followers over the past 8 months, you realize that as much as I’m an avid runner that my life gets in the way just as much with my planned training.
Although I was able to complete about 80%, it’s been such a busy August for me with work (I have two jobs) and generating blog content. That being said, the advice I always give new runners – make your runs your appointment.
I write them in my planner and schedule them like they’re doctors appointments. That time is blocked off – so, if someone calls to go grab a bite to eat or I promise myself it’s going to be a morning commitment, I’m more likely to stick with it.
That being said, like my point about diets, you can’t beat yourself up over missing that appointment. To me, that’s when this running thing isn’t fun anymore. When it becomes a chore or something that’s going to cause stress because you missed another priority. I get it – life happens. Trust me.
I’m heading to Florida next week, so my final miles will be spent in really hot and humid weather – plus, dragging my ass off the beach to get some pavement in isn’t exactly going to sit well with me for obvious reasons. But, having it in my planner as something I’ve already committed to mentally helps me move it.
My last two week running and workout plans are below – you’ll notice I may have overcommitted myself a little bit next weekend…! It’s been on my bucket list since moving back to Boston to run the BAA Half Marathon, and I actually had signed up and paid BEFORE the opportunity with THP10k came across my desk. Once you are able to crush some half marathons (and even 10k’s) under your belt, running back to back races should be ok. You’re obviously going to be hurting/sore (talk to me Monday night), but I’m excited to crush both and do a MASSIVE post on Tuesday telling you all about it.
Finally, I’m so excited to announce I’ll be an ambassador for the Cambridge 5K series, as well as the Cambridge Half! Keep an eye out for more reviews, sneak peeks and reveals as it relates to race day!
As I start to plan into 2018, are there any races you guys want met to check out? Be sure to comment them below!
