1. 9 days until my next half marathon! It feels so close and so far away still! Yesterday was my last long run since I do them mid week, but it was cut a little short due to a meeting in town I had to go to, at this point though I know the hay is in the barn. The work is done and now I just taper and relax, and run a little.
2. Tuesday I had a meeting after work, but between work and the meeting I had some time so I went to Costco and since I still had a little time after that I went for a run. So different to run in town. All the exhaust and watching for traffic!
3. My coworkers at the meeting thought I looked like a rainforest in my INKnBURN monarch tee and leaf shorts. Here I thought I looked like a butterfly.
5. We all know core strength is so important for runners. Yesterday I did some plank variations that I have to admit were pretty hard for me to hold for longer than 15 seconds. Like this lateral plank with a leg lift.
