Training for 4/25/14

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 1:10 pm

Well, I didn’t get up in time to run nine 400s before a hot yoga class. Big surprise, right? However, I did get up early enough to run a lap around the 5.5-mile loop with Pepper, at just under an 8:00/mile average pace, and make it to a hot yoga class. Not too shabby!

This afternoon, Clark and I are heading down to the beach house. Tomorrow morning is the Island 2 Island Half Marathon, the one I’m pacing. I have to pick up my race stuff and meet with the woman who organized the pace groups later today. We’re staying in Fenwick at the beach house tonight, because I have to be in the inlet parking lot by 6:15 a.m. at the absolute latest to catch the last bus to the start line on Assateague Island. The race starts at 7.

Hopefully, I’ll be back in the inlet exactly two hours and 50 minutes later. There’s a post-race party there, and then Clark and I will probably hang around the beach. There’s a lot of stuff going on down there this weekend, including a big local brewers’ event at Fager’s, and a beer and oyster fest at Ropewalk near the beach house. Unfortunately, it’s also spring bike week, so there are going to be a ton of people on motorcycles all over the place. Really not looking forward to dealing with all these tourists so soon!

Tomorrow night is the NASCAR race from Richmond, which I want to see, and then Sunday, I’ll probably do a shortish run in the morning, before we head up to Baltimore for an O’s game. This time, we get to watch it from a suite paid for by one of Clark’s employer’s customers, where there’s all-you-can-eat food, including crabcakes, and an open bar with good beer. I’ve never gotten to go to a game when M&M gets to use the suite, so I’m really looking forward to it.
