1. I signed up for the National Race to End Women's Cancer on November 6, so I'll be racing an 8k in a little over a week. I'm excited to see what I can do in a shorter race and am I'm hoping it will be a good tuneup for the marathon.
2. I realized on Tuesday that I could get to 50 miles for the week (for the first time ever!) without too much difficulty. So, of course, I had to make it happen. I only need to get in just under 7 miles tomorrow, which I normally do for tempo workouts, and I'll be at 30 miles before Saturday's last 20 miler. When I mapped out my original training plan, which was discarded when I started with CAR, one of my goals was a 50 mile week. So I'm pretty excited to get there!
3. Obviously I don't have any idea what the temperature will be for the marathon, but I've already started considering possible outfits. I'm hoping it will be warm enough for a long sleeve tech shirt or a t-shirt and sleeves. I ordered a bunch of arm sleeves to test out and they should be arriving today. Main criteria - pockets for holding gels. I'm hoping that I like one of them!
Conveniently the temperature has decided to drop on Saturday (highs in the 40s), so it will be perfect for testing out my race outfit! I have a feeling it will be just a little too cold on race day for shorts, so I'm glad I can get in a long run in my capris this weekend!
