Given the discussion over at Jamoosh's this week pertaining to race medals and cutoff times, perhaps Norah needs to take these off, huh?
As for MY running, I got a Saturday 3 miler in yesterday morning, and it got me thinking about future running/racing plans.
Back when I was preggo with Caleb, and dreaming of returning to racing, I thought I might be able to train for an HM by late fall. Specifically, I thought I could probably be ready by the time Ft. Lauderdale's 13.1 rolled around in early November (Caleb would be about 5 and 1/2 months then and I ran the Miami HM when Norah was that age). I had been keeping this tentatively in mind, but then I actually looked at a calendar, and...um, nope. That's not gonna happen. I haven't run anything longer than 3 miles. I can't put in the necessary training in the next 8 weeks in order to pull off an HM. And, I just have to accept that this time around, it's been a tougher road in the return to running.
Instead, I'm thinking of running a 10K that same weekend (The Key Biscayne Lighthouse Run on Nov 12). 8 weeks should be enough for me to build up to a 10k, right?
The 10K I have in mind, I've run before -- in fact, it was the first race I ran post-Norah's birth! I can't help but love that kind of symmetry.
Next step: Actually register for it.
