It's finally Friday! This has been a short week at work for me, but coming back from vacay has just made it drag on. I've got a race on my schedule tomorrow - Habanero 100! I'm doing the 20k... remember my indecision of whether to drop down distance or not? Well, I didn't change my distance so I'm going to embrace the suck and do the 20k (technically I can change up to tomorrow morning).
The race starts at high noon (12:15 for those running less than 100 mi/100k), it's going to be a challenge. I've come up with some strategies on how I plan on surviving through the 20k.
My Strategy for Surviving Habanero
- Hydrate, salt pills, hydrate
- Walk the hills, walk the sand, run the fun parts
- Ice in the bra & ice in the buff around the neck
- Floppy hat for shade on face and neck
- Indulge in gatoritas or snowcones
Let's catch up... do you have your fall race schedule planned? Have you ever been in a running funk... what did you do to get out of it?
