less than a week to oz.

I've got nothing blahgesphere. Nothing. Still busy, still trying to catch my breath. I managed a semi-decent running week last week. Once I recovered my orthotics and shoes from my dad's truck (that we borrowed for the relay race) that is. I wasn't happy about shoving all of my runs for the week into four days. But the good news is that I ran four days in a row, with zero pain. And for me? That's saying something.

Of course last week left me doubting and worrying about Saturday's race. But I decided if all else fails, I am just adding to my half marathon medal collection and running a race I've never done before. Every race can't be a PR, every race can't work out perfectly. I realize this, which is why I always take a healthy dose of skepticism (and a healthy dose of hope and confidence) into any race.

I'm planning to take it fairly easy this week. A tempo run is in the mix, but a shorter/easier one than normal. Other than that, I'm working on posting on Brew to Brew and the Rock the Parkway Half. Hopefully they prove more entertaining than my last few lame attempts at writing. And am hoping I can make the rounds back to read all the blahgs I follow, I had 500 waiting for me when I opened up reader this morning for the first time in two weeks. So then that's a good time.

Clearly my blahgging skills are lacking. I'm just hoping once Oz is over, and I'm done teaching (for the REST OF 2011, booyah! i decided to take a big fat teaching break, sweet relief) I'll feel a little less frazzeled. I am ready to slow down for a few weeks...

Good luck at the race. You have the right attitude, but hopefully you'll get that medal AND a PR. ;)

Good luck with those 500 back blogs. I guess you'll find me in there somewhere. ha.

There's something to be said for running pain free.

Enjoy your week!

I'm interested to hear about the Brew to Brew & Rock The Parkway. True, that not all races can be PR's, but it would be nice, right?

Enjoy the rest of the year off!!!

Good luck Saturday, I am just praying to finish the half and since it's my first I guess technically it would be a PR, that thought just brightened my day!

You are going to be great! Just go in there and have a blast and the rest will happen for sure! Sorry I'm missing this one! But know I'll be thinking of you for sure!!

Good luck at the race, I am racing too, about time for me. I never done a half mary so I get a PR by default and I am all about race medals
