Next Friday, I will be running in the Oldsmar Tap House 5K. My 5K time has been slowly improving with today’s run being the fastest yet. Have I mentioned that the first 30 finishers for the 5K get “das boot”? Now, you know why I am so motivated to run fast these days!
Before this morning’s run, I felt very light-headed and dizzy, which I know is allergy related. I haven’t popped a Zyrtec in a while and I ran out of Nasacort some time last week. Despite the dizziness, I still ran pretty well.
While running this morning, I crossed paths with another running neighbor who told me about a running club that meets at Starkey Park early Saturday mornings. She told me that they really help keep her driven and focused. I think I will check it out this Saturday.
For the past couple of Saturdays, I have been running 3 miles and swimming ¼ mile to train for the Faces of Courage triathlon in August (formerly known as Babes and Bums). My swim time was terrible, but my run time was pretty good.
However, I haven’t hopped on my bike yet due to scheduling conflicts with my hubby’s work schedule. Once our schedules jives, I’ll be spinning my wheels again.
So, if I meet with the running club this Saturday, I may be switching my long Sunday run to Saturdays and my triathlon training (swim and run) to Sundays. Unfortunately, I still don’t know what day I will be cycling.
