Sunday I will be running in the Xterra Magnolia Hill 21k in Navasota, TX. This will be my third trail run for this year... I really do enjoy trail running. I wasn't really planning on running a half marathon in the heat of a Houston summer, but I'd be running the mileage anyway. This matched up with my training schedule and I thought that it would be a nice change of pace for my long run. Even though I'm not racing it, I still have some goals for the day.
5 Goals for Xterra Magnolia Hill
- Practice pre-race meals (evening prior and breakfast).
- Execute on fueling and hydration strategy.
- Keep pace "steady" through the race.
- Don't fall.
- Have fun!!
Any one else sign up for races as training runs? Do you make goals for races other than time goals?
I'm linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup!
