14 More Days Until Rock ‘n Roll LA Half!

I have exactly 14 more days left until the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in LA. And, with an intense product launch at work, I’m really going to have to be diligent about logging my miles either before, during, or after work hours.

It’s been a decent training week. I’m hoping to log some more miles tomorrow so we’ll see how I feel. I was really hoping to get into the double digits today but alas I was too hungry and also ran out of water. Sadface!

This week’s total weekly mileage: 21.75 miles, of which 9 of those miles were on my long run.

The sky was a bit ominous (at least for someone from LA) and there was a gentle yet consistent misting. I layered up with my windbreaker and a long sleeved tech shirt, running leggings, and my running-in-slippery-conditions shoes of which I broke in the day before at work. I packed only 12oz of water (a mistake when aiming for a double-digit run). I’m feeling a lot more tired than I usually do during my runs, which I’m attributing to the stressful deadlines and such at work. Hopefully after the storm passes I’ll be back to my usual self.
