Training for 3/29/13

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 4:30 pm

I have nothing to report today. It’s a rest day, so I rested.

Once Shamrock was over, I realized I wasn’t signed up for another race until May 18. Two months is way too long in between races when it’s not winter.

I’ve been cruising local race calendars, and I think I’m going to add to my schedule the Seashore Classic Half Marathon, April 14 in Lewes. It’s pretty cheap for a half, but you get all the expected amenities — tech T-shirt (in women’s sizes!), finisher’s medal, post-race party. Plus, the course is through Cape Henlopen State Park, which is always a great place to run.

I’m scheduled for a 1:45 long run that day, which would be about an 8:00/mile pace for a half marathon. Perfect training run.

I think I’ve got enough 5Ks coming up over the summer that I don’t feel like doing any of those between now and then, but I might do the Oxford Day 10K on April 27. Maybe.

Speaking of summer, there’s a new race in Baltimore that looks interesting. It’s a 12-mile race down Charles Street, which is mostly downhill, from Towson to Power Plant Live on the Inner Harbor. At first the price turned me off completely, but then I saw runners get an Under Armour hoody (also in women’s sizes) instead of just a T-shirt. It makes sense, since Under Armour’s headquarters are right there in Baltimore. There’s also some promises of a big post-race party with good food and beer at Power Plant Live.

That one is Aug. 10, which means it will probably be blazing hot, but that just adds to the fun, right? (And also makes the hoody seem a little ridiculous, but whatever — it will get cold around here again.)

More immediate running plans for the upcoming weekend are another 90-minute long run tomorrow morning and a 3-mile pace run Sunday morning. I took off Monday since it’s my birthday, but I’ll be doing the 3-mile easy run and strength training on the schedule that day too.

Non-running plans for the weekend include Matt and Jamie’s wedding tomorrow night, church and family things for Easter on Sunday and going to the DMV on my birthday to get my driver’s license renewed. I’m a party animal.

  1. I was thinking of doing the 10k in April too. Kind of a test drive before my half. 🙂
