Ran 3 miles easy with my running group yesterday evening. There will be five of us running on Sunday. One running the marathon, four running the half. The marathon runner has already qualified for Boston; he's shooting for a PR and hoping to finish in the top ten of the race. Coach is one of the half runner; he's aiming to be in the top three (hoping to win, I think). While I may not be anywhere near the fastest of the bunch, I plan on having the most fun. :-)
When this race is over, I'm going to ease off on running for a few months (not quit, just ease off) and re-focus on whole body strength. I've already added in more time on my core with a goal of four times per week this month. Next week, I'm going to start some new lower body exercises. And then next month, I'm getting back to push-ups.
I'm also planning to spend more time with some leash training work with my dogs. At the moment, I can walk one or the other fairly well, but putting them together is a disaster. With less running on my schedule, I'll have more time for walking the dogs. With some consistent training, I think I should be able to walk them together in a month or so.
Packet pick-up in two days! And a some point I should figure out what exactly I'm going to wear on race day...
