Race Prep

Race Prep

I have washed my shorts (i have worn them twice to the gym so its about time the go into the wash), charged the garmin, charging the iPod, picked up my kit from mall sports and visited Brooks I loved a pair of trainers but decided that 2 pairs are enough, even the 20%discount didn't tempt me. Then went up to Nike to get my partner some new socks - they still had the jacket i have been lusting after for weeks there in a medium and before you knew it we stood at the check out with - socks, new running tights and half zip top for my partner (we are returning to the UK, so need to get ready for cooler conditions) and a new lightweight jacket for me (picture from website).

.....Number attached to t-shirts, chips attached to trainers, Sunglasses cleaned, water in the fridge and nail polish out ready.

Its going to be warm but hopefully we will manage it. Its our first running event (no longer use the race because its not really a race for us) of 2015. I will be happy to finish as I have not done 10km outside since Dec and suffering from minor toothache. I will just be taking it easy and happy to finish before the finishing time.

Go luck for all those people doing races, completing C25K, training or just out for a pleasant run this weekend.

  • Good on you. Enjoy your "event" ;)

  • Thank you - i think i will be enduring it rather but the way i look at it is i am in warm weather training :)

  • Good luck and enjoy :-)

  • Thank you

  • Love the jacket Vix! Mmmmm it's lovely.

    I hate the getting the stuff ready for races. I don't mind the race itself but the preamble does my head in.

    Good luck with the race. I hope it all goes off all right for you and that it's not too hot. Have fun!

  • I know i told myself if its there today its a "sign" - usually in Chile when its gone its gone. Also on the uk Nike website its £30 more so i thought well that is the second sign. I could now open a running shop :( oh dear -

    I hope its not hot too - we are all counting the days until its 25degrees again. I will be back in the Uk in 27days and looking forward to some rain, cloud and cool temperatures.

  • Good luck! You'll be fine and looking good in your lovely new outfit! :) super-organised too! Enjoy yourselves!

  • Thank you. i have to be organised else i start to panic.Luckily its down the road a Cant wear any of the new purchases :( however its ready to pack in the suitcase.

  • Good luck Vix. Enjoy your running event

    Great jacket xx

  • Thank you - i will try - one step at time. I think i might start packing i mean 27days is not too soon is it? Everything i need to take to England is stuff that i haven't worn for the last 5months so it might as well be sat in a suitcase? - well thats my thinking.

  • Thank you - i am hoping it will come in handy !!

  • Hiya Vix, if you've done the run, how did it go?

    It was a lovely weekend for running here - I did my longest run ever today - 9k - yay!

    Love the jacket :) Looks like a nice weight. It's still fairly cool here - temp keeps changing so a variety of running gear is needed!

  • Thank you pink angel - run was hot, hot, hot today.

    Well done on your 9km run that was fab!! I bet your very happy!!

    I think i will be packing mostly running gear - so i will make sure i pack a variety of stuff.
