Another solid run to prep for Philly

I spent this weekend in Va. Beach with Matt's family and was able to get a nice 6.3 mile run in on Saturday morning on the military base. I had really been hoping to get 8 miles in, but since we were staying on a base with lots of security to get off and on, I didn't feel like extending my run the extra mile off base I would have needed to get 8.

I was happy with the 6.3 I did knocking them out in 1:05. Nothing hurt during although the sun was strong and I should have carried some water with me. I wasn't sore afterward either. I've got to credit that to the lots of stretching I did when I got back to our cabin. (Sidenote, I've never stayed in a log cabin before, it was kind of cool, but also, kind of tiny.)

I've just got to find time to fit in two more runs this week and then it's race time. I'm really looking forward to the race, but I'm looking forward to the weekend after it more. It will be the first weekend in almost two months where I can just stay home and not have to travel somewhere. I think I'm getting burnout from life.

So race this weekend and chillaxing next weekend.

Nice job! I remember the days running around a military base. It was no fun then, though. :(

Hi -
first time reader, found ur blog thru Lindsay's. I'm running PDR on Sunday also - how cool is that?
I would suggest you not run too many miles this week...u r still in rest & recovery mode but should already have lots of good miles of training.
the older posts you were debating where to stay, if u register at all. That extra medal is gonna look so cool. Gutsy of you to go for the double - have fun!
RE: hotel, stay 'downtown Art museum area' and walking to start will be no prob. Or do like I do and drive in early...at 6 a.m. race morning there will be nobody on the streets except 10,000 other runners. Have fun at Expo (there's no race morning packet pick-up). feel free to email me if you gots other logistics Q's.
