I was traveling for work last week, and tapering for the Brooklyn Half, so you’ll see this recap is light on mid-week exercise. I’m excited that the Brooklyn Half is over and I can focus less on running and more on other fitness things. For example, I avoided the Fhitting Room for the last few weeks because after 50 minutes in their studio, I can’t walk, let alone run.
Here’s what happened last week:
Bibs for Brooklyn Half Marathon sold out in 45 minutes. It’s the largest half marathon in the country with over 27,000 participants. In the weeks leading up to there race I was excited to be a part of the party, but I was hurting running wise. If you read any of my weekly recaps, you’ll see my long runs were either terrible or nonexistent. So I started to lower my expectations. Instead of putting pressure on myself to meet a goal, I was just happy not to have a sprained ankle and to get to run a race with a huge running community.
