Mother's Day weekend
I hope everyone had a lovely Mother's Day! My weekend was a mix of good and not-so-good. I made the mistake of staying up late Friday night. I did a short run on Friday, as my long run was planned for Sunday, so I figured I would be able to sleep late on Saturday morning. Silly me! I got to bed at about 2am on Friday night and was up for good at 5:30am--three and a half hours of sleep. I kept trying to go back to bed, but it wasn't happening. Perhaps I was overtired, I don't know. But I spent most of the day in zombieland. Ran most of my errands because Sunday was going to be busy - I had to get to the post office and send off some packages before the rates went up. They're really jumping for media mail. I then spent most of Saturday afternoon on the couch watching some of the shows I have stored on the DVR so that I can erase them. I finally managed to catch some episodes of Raines, which is pretty good, and Painkiller Jane, which I also like. Turned in early and was dead to the world by 10:30pm.
Sunday was the NYJL Mother's Day races in Central Park. Chelly was going to run the 4 mile race at 8am and I decided to do the 10 mile run as my long run for the week. I've decided I really like that idea. The longer runs are much more interesting someplace besides my usual courses and I like to be surrounded by so many other runners. It's why I enjoy my running club, but most of the members who run that long go much faster than I do. So I don't always find someone to run with and end up running alone anyway.
This was going to be my first race in Central Park by myself. Chelly and I don't run together, but we've met up before and after all our previous races. But because we decided not to do the same race, I would be finishing about 2 hours after she would. A little long to hang around and wait, so we decided to do our own thing.
The race was smaller than most of the ones I've done in NYC - only about 1300 runners - and it was only open to women. Made it much more casual feeling at the start. That combined with the fact that I was planning on running only 10:20 miles meant that I had no pressure getting across the starting line.
I had a lot of fun. The weather was beautiful. A little too windy, but sunny and around 60 degrees. The wind was blowing all kinds of stuff around. The blowing blossoms made it look like it was snowing at times. I carried Gatorade, Cliff Blocs and some Jelly Belly sports beans. I alternated between water and carbs at each mile. Just a little each time to keep me going. Felt fine until a little after the 8 mile mark when I decided to eat the entire bag of sports beans. Figured if the upset my stomach I was already almost done. No problem. This is good to know for my half-marathon in three weeks.
My left quad is pretty sore today and I feel a little run down, so I decided to take the day off. Can't take too long a break, however. I'm planning to run 10k in the Healthy Kidney race on Saturday. And this one I'm hoping to race.

    I am keen on the logner runs too.

    And those Cliff Blocks are actually pretty good to! I was surprised.
