It’s exactly 1 month until the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run! Although I’m super excited (it IS after all, the “The Runners Rite of Spring”), I’m also a tad unprepared. I PR’d at this run last year, And I’d really like to do it again. However……..
I’ve logged exactly ONE run so far. One.
BUT! There is light at the end of the tunnel. The weather is finally starting to break here in Central PA, making for a little more runner-friendly conditions. I’m sure I’ll be prepared by the time April 6th rolls around, but I’m certainly cutting it a tad close for comfort. I need to remind myself not to up my mileage too quickly (something I’m always guilty of).
I think my long run schedule is going to look a little something like this:
- March 9th – 4 Miles
- March 16th – 6 miles
- March 23rd – 8 miles
- March 30th – 9 miles
I’ll of course sprinkle shorter runs and some interval training in throughout the week leading up to each Sunday, but for now, that’s the game plan.
On Monday, I received a package from the race committee! Check out this New Balance swag!
The race committee brought me on board as one of their blogging team for this year’s event. If you haven’t checked it out before, head over to the race’s blog. There’s a team of 4 of us who are contributing!
I was given a bib for the race, and I’ll be in attendance at their VIP dinner on Saturday night. I’m extremely excited because I consider this my very first press trip as part of this blog! I’m looking forward to giving you guys a FULL report upon my return.
Last year I stayed at Hotel George:
I liked it so much (helloooo free wine hour!), I think I’m going to stay there again this year. You can read my review of the hotel here.
I’m fairly certain I’m “flying solo” this year – meaning the fam won’t be along. And I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to visit any of the museums on Saturday, but if I do, I think I’m going to head to the Holocaust Museum. It’s not one we’d take Kenzer in to at this age, so I may take the opportunity to go while she’s not along.
Are there any “must see” places you’d suggest in D.C.?
