Workout Wednesdays: Favorite RaceWednesday, October 1, 2014
The irony of the last couple of weeks is that Wednesday has become my rest day with all of my half marathon training. That's right -- Workout Wednesdays minus the Workout. (Insert Kanye shrug here.) I've been playing an insane amount of volleyball, plus the half marathon training, plus the new job; I've been one tired woman! Fortunately, the training plan requires rest, because around Tuesday evening, I start to feel like maybe I'm overexerting myself, and I know I would push myself too hard -- potentially injuring myself. Tonight, I went to check out this bizarre movie, Maze Runner, with a friend. (I can't really tell you what it was about, because I don't really know.) My knees and lower back are so happy that I did!
So, back to the #WOWlinkup. The theme for this week is to discuss your favorite race. Note: If you want to participate, check out the rules and explanation over at Femme Fitale Fit Club.
Being a newbie runner, I haven't actually participated in any race more than once (yet). It's actually weird to think about, but it's true. I don't have a favorite race (yet). I will say, however, that I really enjoyed the 5K FoamFest obstacle course race I did back in July. It was fun, yet super challenging. I wasn't really prepared for the actually running part of the race (the most important part, I know), but it really pushed me, and I got to run it with great friends! Hopefully I'll have a bunch more races under my belt at this point next year, and I'll have a better answer!
What's your favorite race? How do you spend your rest days?
