First of all Happy Labor Day. I know for most working folks today is a day off, a long weekend. Not me. I usually always have Mondays off so this feels like nothing special. except the kids are home from school and my husband doesn't go to work, so I have to clean up after them and make lunch. Since I really only have to work one day this week I guess that is okay.
Why do I only have to work one day you ask? I am leaving for Colorado with Team Beef Montana to run a Ragnar Relay! YAY!
I am going to start thinking about packing for Ragnar Colorado today and make sure what I want to bring with me is clean.
I have no delusions about kicking butt on my relay legs in light of
- right quad still not at 100%
- not really trained for speed right now
I do feel confident that I can get them cranked out at a decent pace.
I am legs 10, 22, 34 rated very hard, moderate, and very hard.
Leg 10. Mostly downhill. 7 miles
Leg 22. Mostly downhill. 4.6 miles
Leg 34. Mostly uphill. 10.4 miles. This leg scares me a little.
My plan is to try not to run too fast on the first two legs so I still have something left in the tank for the last crazy leg.
I also am not planning anymore hard workouts between now and then. I did a killer kettlebell workout Friday and am still pretty sore from that as I sit here typing this.
What do you consider relay essentials when packing for a relay?
