Where has the summer gone? I feel like I was just starting (and re-starting) Seawheeze 2018 training, and now we are in week 10 – THE RACE IS IN 4 MORE WEEKS!!!! YIKESSSSS! If you are training for this race (or any fall/autumn race for that matter), how has training been going for you? Are you feeling race ready, or wish you had a few extra weeks/months before race day?
I have been training for the Oak Bay Half-Marathon for the past 17 weeks. I put so much pressure on myself to get a Personal Best (PB) at this race. Even though I have been running for a few years now, this past year running has been really hard for me. I was essentially starting over. Originally my race goal time was extremely adventurous (11 minutes faster than my first half-marathon in 2016), and a few weeks ago I made the decision to rain in my expectations and come up with a more realistic goal. A goal I knew I would smash….or at least I thought I would.
So I’ve decided to mix the blog up, and have guest bloggers once in a while. I always love hearing about other peoples’ experience with running and why they run… so I thought you might too. If you would like to feature as a guest blogger, please drop me an email.
So Guest Blog #1 goes to Andrew Spurr. Andrew is a writer living in Canada, he is cute, smart, funny, and is the Spurr to my MacSpurr… yes he is my husband. You can find Andrew on all social media as @ASpurrWrites, and he also has a blog http://www.aspurrwrites.wordpress.com
