Yup. My 20’s are over as of 12:29p this afternoon. Go figure I was born at lunch time, I have always been a hungry kid. 5 weeks ago, I had this genius (ha!) idea that signing up for a half marathon would be a great way to keep me from diving back into CrossFit too soon. It (kind of) worked. I caved and grabbed a barbell twice last week. It led to a bunch of DOMS and regretting the fact that I have yet to replenish my stock of Progenex Loco Mocha Recovery.
So, this week I calm the fluff down and taper. Why, because MY FIRST HALF MARATHON IS ONLY 5 DAYS AWAY! On October 10th, I will do what I’m sure my high school track coaches thought would never EVER happen: I run my first half marathon. I better not hate it too much, because, you know… I got into Seawheeze. No matter how good or badly that Saturday goes, I’ve got to suck it up and train to be ready to do this again in August.
In the meantime… I NEED TO PUT TOGETHER A PLAYLIST!
Readers, I am looking for your suggestions! What are some of your favorites to jam out to while you’re trying to tell your legs to keep on going for 2+ hours straight? The comments section awaits. I’ve got Spotify Premium and I’m totally ready to use it.
Shoot, what are your race day (and/or night before) rituals?
