It’s going to be a running weekend.
Today I have the Smuttynose Palooza 5K in Salisbury. The weather looks pretty good. Temps in the 40′s with a mild breeze. I’ll probably wear shorts.
You know it’s the dead of winter when anything above 32F feels, pretty good. I know that I have fully adjusted to the ice locker we call New England! In July if it gets into the 70s we start thinking about October. In March, 40F has us dreaming of July and heat.
Sunday I have a 20 mile Sunday Long Ron with the #MRC, Melrose Running Club.
For Sunday I’m thinking of using the walk/run strategy. I plan to use the 5K on Saturday as a speed workout and I’m shooting for 22 minutes or less. I feel healthy, nothing hurts so it’s time to stop being a cupcake. Sunday is about slogging the miles. I need to get in a good 20 mile run. Speed is not a consideration.
Once again, I’ll be running the longest distance since October. It feels good to be able to go out and do it again. No physical ailments to hold me back. It’s all me and my head now.
Run well my friends.
