(juuuust great 😑)
I took it easy for most of the day. I hydrated, got some rest, and started watching a new Netflix series...
But prior to spending the day relaxing in bed, I did one of my fastest 1 mile runs in over a year...
(a 9:31 min/mile pace!!! 😀)
I really hope I continue to see improvements in my running. And I really think I will once I start adding different components to my overall training plan and eating better. Not a strict diet like I used to fixate on, but rather just making better food choices.
Since traditionally the day before a race would dictate carb-heavy meals, I started the day with crunchy french toast (they were not good 😒) and ended the day with tasty Peruvian food (it was a shrimp dish but I had
all most of my rice 😊). In addition to the food, the company was amazing and the live "one-man-band" was awesome...
I'm pretty set for my half marathon tomorrow. Even with the heat advisory I've decided not to run with water, but to just rely on the water along the course (which should be stationed at every mile). But I'll hydrate before I start (throughout the race) and immediately after.
It will be an early morning tomorrow (3:15am wake up call; 4:30am arrival to start; 6:00am race start time) but I'm hoping for a great race day and looking forward to relaxing after my 13.1 mile run 😎.
