|Chardon 5K 7/3/10--can you see the similarity? haaa|
So, what's on the agenda for this weekend? Good question. I've been going back and forth, and will likely change my mind again. Yes, I'm an indecisive person, however I try my best to be a "smart" runner. In my opinion, being a "smart" runner means listening to your body. If your exhausted, sore, or just not feelin' it, the world will not end if you alter your running plans. Often times, these are signs of over training which can overall hinder your running performance. So, if you wake up the morning of a long run and aren't feeling it, switch up your schedule a little bit and get it in later. If you wake up feeling that way every day, then there might be a bigger problem!
So, back to the weekend. Tomorrow is my REST day (and I need it!). I'm thinking I will do a 90 minute long run Saturday on the Tow Path. The Tow Path is AMAZING and I haven't made it out there in quite a while, so I'm looking forward to it! So, that means I'll be skipping the 5K in Westlake. If I'm feeling it, I'll do the 10K that's going on in my neighborhood Sunday. We shall see!!
Related to my blog today, I'll end with one of my favorite quotes:
"The pain is temporary. It may last a minute, an hour, a day, or a year, but eventually it subsides. And when it does, something else takes its place, and that thing might be called a greater space for happiness. Each time we overcome pain, I believe that we grow." ~ Lance Armstrong
