I set out to run three miles yesterday, but ended up going five. What can I say? It was a beautiful evening and I felt good (and feel good this morning!). I have a little more than a week to go before the RnR Portland, but I am focusing on taking it a day at a time until I get there. My intention for this half marathon is not to set a new PR, but to finish strong and without injury. This might mean some walking, since I’ve been running fewer miles in the last month due to recovery from a slight knee injury. We’ll see how it goes.
I am planning at least one trail run this weekend. The rain is supposed to return (boo!), but I will say that the woods smell amazing after a shower.
Looking forward to a weekend of relaxing, eating and running. What are your plans?
