Countdown is done. It is time to see if I prepared myself enough for my 2nd half marathon of 2016. I wish I’d done more strength training but ready or not, it’s here.
Suppose to be a gorgeous day too! I haven’t ran this one hosted by the local city police department. But typically I’ve heard it alway lands on cold, rainy, and windy days. Tomorrow’s forecast is 15km winds and at start of run 8 degrees Celsius and by end of 2.5 ish hours running, it will be almost 14 degrees.
I’ve laid out my gear and did an easy 5k run this morning. Cooked a healthy homemade pasta for supper.
Now I’m in bed very early to rest the legs and to get up 3 hours before run… bright and early at 5:30am. I want time to hydrate, eat, and pee several times haha.
I sort of wished I’d rested more today. I decided to stock up our homemade freezer soups I make for work lunch. That meant going out for groceries (a story for another day by the way), cleaning up an already messy kitchen, chopping veggies for 1/2 hour, making soups for 2.5 hours and then clean up for about another 1/2 hour. Finishing up with still cooking up sauce for supper. Husband conveniently was busy today haha. Ok. He really was but I wish he wasn’t. We don’t own a dishwasher and I could sure use him on freezer meal prep stock up days to chop or do dishes.
But I got it done. A batch each of corn chowder, clam chowder, and chicken soup.
Best part of all this work? I restocked freezer with soups and a new pasta sauce after slowly restocking freezer meals the last month. Now I have it filled nice and full for my spring grad studies night class starting next week…and then Brad comes home…”Hey hon! I have 2 large bags of buns and a few pies leftover from my event today. Got room in the freezer?” 😂🙈
But I’m superwoman. And I managed it…barely. Now superwoman needs her beauty sleep to run 21.1km starting in 24 hours.
