As I sit here on the most sacred of all days, the day of rest, I am pondering whether this weekend's 5K race will happen. There are several items to consider...
- My son Joey, who is 8, is signed up for the kids' fun run (a 200-yard dash prior to the actual 5K). I don't really have anyone to watch him while I run the 5K, though, so he may not go. I don't think he will shed any tears over it, but it was supposed to be a fun morning for the two of us.
- I want to get in my long run of 10 miles this weekend. My friend Danielle would like to run with me on Saturday morning. I am not sure how my body will handle running 10 miles and then racing a 5K the next morning.
- I could possibly wake up at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning (around 5:15 AM) and get in the 10 miles before Joe leaves for work, then use Saturday as a rest or cross-training day. That would give me a day without running prior to the 5K.
I will update tomorrow with what I have decided!
