The day after the half I decided to go run the Pacing 4 Paws 5k. I debated it all day long as I laid in the bed until after 11am, the hubz asked me was I ever going to get up, LOL! When I finally got up I didn't think I was going to go, my legs was feeling a little sluggish however once I was up and moving I started feeling much better so I decided to go and just run it easy like a recovery run! Thankfully it was later in the afternoon but it was crazy hot definitely wasn't ready for that. Good thing for small crowds! I took off maybe a little too fast quickly slowed my pace to comfortable and was lucky enough to finish in a decent time. They awarded the top 2 per age groups and I was able to claim 1st! The next day I was just completely wiped out~ super tired and was for two days so I decided to just take it easy and do nothing for the next two days! Wednesday afternoon I met up with Sarah to run, once again it was super hot and this was her first run post full marathon so I left it all up to her how and how much we would run. Neither of us was really feeling it so we cut it at 2mi and walked about a mile to cool back down. The next day is when I woke up the the AWFUL migraine I think the heat got the better of me!
If you have followed my blog at all you know I run a local series called Wilderness Trace Run/Walk Serres. It is a series of races any where from 12- 14 races in which if you complete so many you get prizes at the end like a long sleeve wicking shirt, jacket or vest, hats & gloves or ear warmers. For the last two years I have completed every single race one year it was only me and last year it was only me and my friend (at least I hope she is still my friend). Needless to say I LOVE the SERRES!! I plan my summer around every race and make it a point to attend every race:)
