5 by the 5th virtual race series. (Do remember to hop on over to Mommy Run Fast if you're interested!) I've been enjoying this as an additional excuse to get myself out the door some days. Every now and then, I just need the extra oomph to really motivate myself.
I have to admit, this month's run wasn't fantastic. But then, I've had enough good runs lately to sort of let this one slide. I'd gone out during one of the Exercise Baby-Swap days I have with my friend Kerri, and the day itself was a bit dismal-looking. Though the weather was just cool enough to feel good. I just managed to do the 5 miles, but my pace wasn't my best. I'd been putting up with a migraine on and off for most of the day and was just generally struggling to find my running groove.
Well, today starts a new week, so hopefully, I'll get in another couple of good 5-milers. After all, the Fleet Half Marathon is now only 2 weeks away. Eek! I'm a bit nervous, but mostly I feel good about the whole thing. No matter what else happens, I know I can cross the finish line in a respectable amount of time. That said, I'd love to finish in 2:00:00 or less. That would be amazing.
