Registered for Race! Oh Wait…

Well, I finally got my registration in for the upcoming Burgh’s 10K/5K Run & 2 Mile Fun Walk on Sunday April 21, 2013. So exciting! Oh wait, except that I can’t do it now. Ok, here’s the story. I registered on Monday last week, only to find out that my friend’s bachelorette party is going to be in Roanoke the night before, which is a little under 3 hours away from the race. Normally I’d just say “Oh I’ll squeeze that in!” However, I just can’t imagine trying to get up and leave that early AND be in high spirits. Cat Hair in my Coffee moment, much?

So, if you know anyone who would like to take my spot, please shoot me an email at bailee.r.morris@gmail.com. Much appreciated!

I fell way behind in my 10K plan, leaving me at around the 2.75 mile mark right now. It’s probably for the best that I push back my 10K. With all of these bridal showers, weddings and bachelorette parties, my schedule is left with just a few days a week to train. However, despite falling behind in my training, I’m feeling better than ever about my strength and endurance. Slow and steady is definitely the way to go for me. Here’s what the next few weeks look like.

Week 7 Day 1-3 

  • Brisk five minute warmup walk
  • Jog 2.5 miles
  • Five minute cool down

Week 8 Days 1 & 2

  • Brisk five minute warmup walk
  • Jog 2.75 miles
  • Five minute cool down

Week 8 Day 3

  • Brisk five minute warmup walk
  • Jog 3 miles
  • Five minute cool down

So you see that I’m pretty far behind and very far behind from where I was about a year ago. No big, though. I plan on hitting the trail as much as possible over the next few weeks so that I complete this plan at least within a week or two of the upcoming wedding I’m in.

Never Going to Finish
