Exercise: 5am strength and cardio circuit- 50 mins
Immediately after exiting the Hollywood Half Marathon expo I called Music Man and told him I was never running a big race again. I was so fed up with huge, crowded disorganized races. So he was pretty surprised when I told him I signed up for the Valley Crest half Marathon yesterday. It's a popular race but not a big one, so it doesn't count ;)
The best part is that it's super close to my house. I do my hill repeats on the trail head! It's where I hiked 3 days before giving birth.
And it's where Music Man mountain bikes daily.
The race has a decent start time of 8am which I am truly looking forward to. That way the fam can drop me off and see me finish. This wasn't really possible at the Hollywood Half.
I'm really looking forward to more trail running too. I've spent the last few years really pounding the pavement and can't wait to get back out into nature.
I'll do my first training run Saturday but it will be short because I'm running a 5k on Sunday with a few friends. I don't plan on PRing, but it should be a good time.
Hope you're having a great week.
