I have nothing much planned for tonight. Maybe some happy hour? Maybe a hot date with the back porch? Opportunities are endless.
Tomorrow, I will run a few miles, then head over to the JM5K. My college roommate Sean is coming up for it, and I am super excited because this is his first 5K. I am also just excited to see him. As for me? Well, I just hope I don’t embarrass myself. I am coming off of my peak mileage week, and I think the legs are a little tired. Post-race, there is a great after party, so that shall be my afternoon and evening.
On Sunday, I am meeting the gang for our last run before the marathon (I will be out of town next weekend!). We “only” have 12 miles on deck. It’s hard to believe training is coming to an end. I am still having nightmares about the actual run. And I feel squeamish every time I run up a hill and realize how hard it is.
In first world problems, I have been trying to determine which way at Wildwood is tougher. Clockwise or counter-clockwise? I change my mind every time. I regularly run both. I compared the elevation charts and I STILL CAN’T DECIDE. For the longest time, I thought clockwise was harder. I think clockwise has harder hills, but less frequent. Counterclockwise has hard, long climbs. I don’t know. Life is hard. I even made a chart to compare here and it won’t upload. WHY GOD WHYYYY.
Tim and I both had stressful weeks, so we hit up happy hour last night. It was necessary and I just really love hard cider. SO, I will abuse that this weekend.
