As a reminder, I’m running the NYC Marathon for Fred’s Team, and am working towards hitting a huge fundraising goal to support cancer research! I am blogging about my NYC Marathon Training throughout this process. You can click here to read more and make a donation.
This was another tough week of training given how crazy my work has been. However, I managed to get in most of my workouts. I also got a sports massage on Monday which REALLY hit the spot! I’ve found myself very run down mid week, so I need to either find a way to push through or change up my schedule.
My long run on Saturday was a mix of good and not. I had some stretches where I felt great, but I started getting some tightness in my left leg towards the end and just was struggling mentally. It culminated with me tripping on a rock or something and completely wiping out during my last mile. I didn’t hurt myself past a bunch of scrapes and cuts, but MAN those scrapes and cuts HURT with the sweat running into them. I was running on the side of the trail which is clay/dirt, so it could have been worse if I had tripped on the asphalt. I definitely got dirty though!
Our SHINE for CANCER event is going very well…we have raised over $1500, with still 11 days to go.
As a reminder, I will be cutting my hair off at the end of the month. I picked out three potential haircut options and will cut my hair in the style that receives the most donations through August 31st. You can click here to donate, just add a note to your donation with your vote!
