I have been running, but am still not back up to my weekly mileage that I was used to training up for the half marathon. I will probably not be running the ING Atlanta Half Marathon as I had previously planned. This is mainly due to how my schedule has been messed up. I am not all that concerned as I was not 100% committed anyway.
I need(ed) to run a 10k today or next week at the latest to get a qualifying time so I can get a seeded spot in the Peachtree Road Race coming up on July 4th. The registration comes out in next Sunday's paper so I have to have a qualifying race in and the results back by next Sunday. I skipped the race I was going to do this morning because I really didn't feel like running in the cold 30 degree weather with rain and snow. Yea, I know - what a wimp! I just didn't feel up to it, and then on top of that I would have had to leave home by 5:30 or 6:00 to get to the other side of Atlanta.
I have one last option, there is a 10k next Saturday that is a Peachtree qualifier, and they let the runners hang around after the race to get the results card so they can use it the next day for the qualification. I will be running this race I think, if not I will not get a seeded entry into the Peachtree which would really stink. I know I can get sub 55 which will give me a good seeding, but would love to get sub 50 which is what I am shooting for.
I will be blogging more now - I have just been a bit too busy lately and that was one of the things that just didn't happen.
