Well - it is the day after Valentine's Day.
Usually the most dreaded day of the year for me, but this year it is February 27.
For that is the date that I will complete my second half marathon - the Disney Princess Half.
The last time I ran one I hadn't trained fabulously well in that I was ill and lazy before the Galveston Half. This time I am recovering from an injury and semi-lazy.
I have made a few decisions though in the process:
- 13.1 miles is a long distance for someone with as many old injuries as I have
- training for 13.1 miles is tedious at times
- I am not a morning person
- I have a problem with pink
Yep - this is my probable Disney Princess Half outfit - a pink long sleeve shirt, a pink ruffle-y skirt, some black semi-compression capris with a pink stripe, pink Newton racers,
and . . . .
a pink, sparkly headband Jen sent me just for this race. I think it goes nicely with my pink tiara.
But today wasn't just about the outfit - it was about the outfit and my new hydro belt.
I ran about the same track as yesterday - roughly 2.1 miles in 27:47 - faster than yesterday.
This gave me an overall pace of 13:21/mile including the walking breaks! I was able to keep in my 4/1 format for the most part - and while it was painful - I was soooo happy at the end of it.
However - my belt and I are not getting along.
It pulls my skirt up in the back, bounces up from my hips, and causes me to cuss
But I will try again tomorrow with the same outfit and see how it goes.
Go team go - PINK!!!!!
