I’m now one month into half marathon training, and although I haven’t logged as many miles as I had hoped to, it still feels good to be in training again. Between being sick for a week, a super busy couple of weeks at school, and being exhausted from all of the AP and state testing at work, I haven’t done as much training beyond my planned runs as I would have hoped to. However, I know that there is still plenty of time between now and Rock ‘n’ Roll Virginia Beach to fully prepare myself for race day, so I’m trying to not be too hard on myself.
There were two big highlights to my week. On Monday, Preston and I enjoyed spending Memorial Day afternoon at Manassas Battlefield. We logged a couple of miles walking the battlefield. It was nice to spend the day honoring those who have sacrificed their lives for serving our country out on the battlefield.
On Saturday, I ran my first virtual race, the Bad Ass Runner 5 Miler. Like with all of my races, I’ll recap the race, and plan to later this week. For now, let’s just say that Saturday morning was hot and humid, which made for a very sweaty run.
