I have a 10 miler on the docket for tomorrow. 10 miles is the farthest I’ve ever run solo/in training, and every 10 miler I’ve ever done has left a bad taste in my mouth. Either it sucks and I hate it, or I don’t fuel properly and end up sick all day after. I’m hoping that tomorrow’s run will break the 10 mile curse and get me ready to face longer distances that are forthcoming with marathon training.
I am now obsessed with Yoga With Adriene on YouTube. My friend Nicole suggested the videos when I lamented my seeming inability to get out of bed for a Sunday morning yoga class. Now, I can do yoga in the comfort and privacy of my home, and totally on my own schedule. It’s so awesome. Adriene is down to earth and funny, but I still feel like I’m getting most of the same benefits as going to class.
I’m signed up for another race! The Vermont 100on100 relay is similar to a Ragnar race, but it’s only 100 miles in one day. You still have a big team and you still drive around in a van and get sweaty and smelly, but it’s a little less of a crazy commitment. Six people per team, each runner has 3 legs for a total of 13-18 miles. My friend Chris is a team captain and asked yesterday if I wanted to join his team “J’adore Hardcore.” Um, YES! We’ll rent a room in Stowe for the night before, and a room at Okemo for the night after, so it’s a big fun weekend event. I can’t wait!
Have you ever done a relay race like Ragnar or 100on100? Did you have fun?
