Thinking Out Loud

Hi Thursday…can’t wait to see your friends, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  So let’s celebrate today with a little thinking out loud…


Happy Spring!!  We have had three…yes, three whole days of Spring like temperatures here in NC.  Tomorrow, it returns to a being a bit colder and rainy, but it’s been so great to get out the last few days and actually run not all bundled up.

Speaking of the weather, so far, so good on the weather for Saturday’s marathon.  It looks like 50 for the low and the high near 70.  I love when the weather is cut and dry as far what to wear.  I’ll be taking a skirt and tank.  I need to remember to bring trash bags to stay warm until it’s race time.  The overall temp is a bit warmer than I’d like but hopefully it won’t be humid too.

What’s my plan for this marathon?  What’s my time goal?  Um…I don’t necessarily have one.  Since we didn’t follow a “true” marathon plan, I’m sticking to my heart rate for this one.  I would like to see how much more improvement I’ve had since my last marathon following the same race day plan.  I’ve run using MAF for another 3 months and will continue it until late June.

So Cara’s Timehop the other day was about our marathon last year in Wrightsville.  It was actually the same weekend as this weekend…kind of funny.  Apparently I like running a marathon on the same weekend.  Then it got me thinking and this will be my 3rd marathon in a year (March to March), my 6th marathon.  That’s kind of crazy!

So what’s on your mind?  What are you thinking about?

  1. Wow 6 marathons! I’d say that is crazy but then I do tough mudders, so I guess we’re all our own special kind of crazy 🙂 I signed up for the iron girl half! That’ll pretty much close out my Spring racing season right there. Gotta go out with a bang right? Good luck this weekend!
