Cramming for a 10K

I am running in the Market Square Day10K  in Portsmouth in just 3 weeks.  My training was going nicely up until a month or so ago when I was sidelined by a horrific cold and/or sinus infection.  A measly cold never has slowed me down like this.  I went about 2 weeks without doing any exercise (other than coughing), so now I am trying to get my training in quickly!

This is a fun race as the route makes a loop of Portsmouth and even goes right by my house at the 2 mile mark.  As a matter of fact, my blog’s header photo was taken during last year’s race.

I feel pretty good about getting back into my training this week.  I managed to run twice and get to yoga twice.  This week, the goal is to run 3 times.   Wish me luck!


  1. I finally started jogging last November after reading Born to Run by Christopher McDougall. I still have yet to sign-up for my first official race, but need to get that underway. I’ll be sure to come back to your blog for some more running inspiration.
