Not Ready for the Race--Oh Crap

As I've stated in previous posts, the past few weeks have been a bit overwhelming with family stuff and just the usual maintenance of yard, home, and running.

I have only run 2 miles this week--eek!  And that was not a very good run, since it was during our high temps and horrible humidity (note to self--do not run when there is a heat advisory for your city).  I keep forgetting about the Run the Flood 5K I am running tomorrow!  I am not prepared, although when I do remember about the race, I am so glad I did not sign up for the 7 mile race.  Glory be!

The great thing about Saturday is the projected weather:  72 and sunny, with no rain all day.  A perfect running  and mowing day.  I have to get out and work in the yard--the weeds just love to grow when I'm not looking.  Happily, I was able to start using my basil for a pasta dish last night.  It's growing and looking wonderful, and my tomato plants have buds on them.  

I'll have a recap of the 5K tomorrow.  Let's all cross our fingers that a week of not much running will mean my legs are refreshed and not wimpy!


  1. Good luck!! I can't wait to hear how it went!

  2. Just pretend you were tapering. You'll do great! Have fun!!

    I'm jealous about your basil. I can't seem to keep the stuff alive.

  3. Oh Sue... I wish you good luck, although I don't think you will need it! Hope you post pics of you crossing the line!

  4. Thanks ladies! Bud is going with me, so that will be incentive to try harder.

    And that basil was damn tasty last night :)

  5. Just use the 5k as training for the longer one. I hate running when it's so hot and sticky, so hopefully the weather will cooperate tomorrow :)

  6. Best of luck! I know you'll kick some 5K a$$! Looking forward to the race pics. Tell Bud to make sure he gets you crossing the finish line!!
