It was nice to take a rest day this morning, especially since it’s been a busy week. I probably should have run through a quick set of core exercises or done some upper body work, but I decided to enjoy my coffee and the extra time instead. I’m hearing that the rain will clear out tonight but tomorrow morning will be very windy. I’m not sure what that will mean to runners, but if the wind comes from the south that long hill on the first mile and a half will be a lot tougher.
Again I’ve reached the point where my training ends and the result of that effort will be reflected at the finish line the next day. I’m not expecting a 5K PR considering the hilly course and the possible wind issue. Either way, if it’s tough for me then it will be tough for the hundreds of others who will also participate. This may be the first time I race in October. Seems hard to believe, but I think it’s true.
Correction: I ran the Cape Cod Marathon Relay in October!
