I typically write my post the evening of our group training session but my internet was down last night so I’m a day late. But anyway, here we are at week nine! The last week and race week..the race is on Friday. Last night Matt went over race preparations and we met actually at the race site rather than our normal place. It was a windy, stormy evening; as I’ve mentioned in other posts I don’t like to be out in the elements, rain, snow…but guess what I was out running in the rain last night! Yep, Matt got me! So I guess I’m an offical runner now! Whoo! It was good energy last night everyone is excited about this week, and some, myself include are a little nervous. But I guess that’s to be expected if you’ve never done this. Several people told me that would settle down once we got there.
We were asked to submit our goals for the race and as I’ve stated throughout this entire blog, my goals have been to go the distance and finish the race. A quick side note…I won a free Genesis Training last night for submission of my goals, for either the next training which starts next week or the fall training session..so I guess I’m in for the next one! That was cool. So if I remember my goals and that I’m not in competition with anyone out there I should do just fine. These nine weeks have gone by quickly; not only have I’ve gotten ready for this 5k but the health benefits have been noticeable as well. I have had people notice how toned I’ve gotten. That’s been a bonus of all of this.
Matt stressed keep everything as we have over these nine weeks, no new shoes, sports bras, socks, nothing. Keep everything as it has been..good advice I must say. So I’m going to where my favorite shorts, and sports bra that I like to run in that are comfortable and my Brooks. See you on race day.
