I stuck to my new training plan but it was a lazy week for me cross training. I have had a lot of time off in the past few weeks (using up my remaining vacation time before it expires on January 1.) It is much more difficult for me to get motivated when I have time at home, as opposed to being on my normal routine with work. This weeks Yoga class was taught by a different teacher who was a lot more difficult. I think it will pay off to try different classes taught by different teachers to get more variety.
Have you been following the Hot Chocolate DC 15K/5K disaster? It is like a train wreck that I cannot look away from. The posts just keep coming and people are really angry. I am so thankful to have never experienced anything remotely that terrible while racing.
Have you ever run a horrible race?
