Brief and to the Point

Yesterday: 3 miles

Today: Haven't yet done it, but I plan on another 3 miler.

Keepin' 'em short so that the legs retain some energy for Thursday.

Wednesday: Last day of work for the week and a day of running rest.

Thursday: Turkey Trot's 5K -- my desire, as you all know, is to attempt a PR and I'm getting kind of nervous about that. The pressure! My god, the pressure!

But then, afterwards, PR or no PR, there will be turkey. Oh yes, loads of turkey. And beer. Mmmm, beer.

I got all hyped up for a PR too, and it didn't happen (race for the cure a while back). I hope you have better luck. At least there is beer...

PR's do bring so much pressure, don't they - especially for a 5K. I know you can do it. Regardless, just think you're earned your beers probably more than most people for doing a race before partaking in all the delicious food.

3 mile runs are my favorite too! I can do them on my lunch hr and still make it back to work in a decent time.

Have fun. If you are going to beat a PR, what better way to do it than in your own backyard.

I found a sure-fire way to PR my Turkey Trot - sell my spot to someone faster! ha ha.

I'm creating my own Turkey Trot on Thursday!

Good luck Jess, I hope you PR. Just picture how much better it all will taste with a nice PR as the cherry on top. Happy Thanksgiving.

Mmmmm, turkey and beer!

Karrie said...

oooh, beer on Thanksgiving. I'm so jealous! We don't have beer, or wine, or anything worth drinking. Enjoy some for me!

Marcy said...

Turkey and beer!! What more could you ask for?

(In reference to your comment) LMAO! It's supposed to be my "caffeine buzz" Althouhg now that I look back at it . . .it could also be confused with having some vodka in there :P

Laurel said...

Mmm, sounds like the perfect Turkey Day! Have fun and good luck on the trot!

Jes said...

Good luck!! PR or not, I hope you have a great day!

Eat some turkey for me, they don't have any in this friggin' country so it's been 2 years since I've had a proper Thanksgiving!

Jes said...

Good luck on your PR, but must importantly enjoy the turkey and beer!!!

Shannon said...

Good luck on the Turkey Trot. We'll see you for the post-race recap and... don't forget... pie!

My only luck with PRs is to try not to get them--a little reverse psychology. Otherwise, you try too hard and end up maxing yourself out.

Way to be so consistent lately...it's really amazing and inspiring.

Mary Gee said...

I think a 5k is so challenging because it is so short. You don't have time to make up for any errors or slow moments.
