We ran by a dairy farm (ick!), through neighborhoods, and turned around at a park and ran part of the course on the way back. I always like doing races in new cities, so that was cool. Running by the dairy farm twice was not cool. My IT band/knee held up okay with some KT tape.
Sunday morning was homemade crepes with Nutella & sliced bananas and strawberries followed by cleaning. The hubs and I headed out at about 11am to do an easy 3 mile recovery run (@ 8:45/mi.). It was rough to say the least.
The rest of the day was spent mostly on the couch cuddling with the munchkins (B leaves for camp today!)
My brother from LA, his family, and my cousin drove up for dinner. Roasted veggies, chicken, and apple pie for the win!
Monday will be a quick strength video and an easy 3 miles (still recovery) run after work.
Wed: 4.5 mi hills
Sat/Sun: 1 longish run since I have another 1/2 on 3/12!
Do you prefer races in town or a destination race?
Do you have to hone in on what you eat before a hard workout/race?
