This weekend we are kicking off Operation Fast Half. I’m ready. To run AND to have something running related to talk about on the running blog.
On Sunday, it will be 5 weeks since the marathon (say what?). I really like spacing big races out so I have a good month to rest and relax. That way, when I have to jump in again, I’m itching for it instead of feeling burned out. I’m ready to push myself to new goals and for goodness sake get my calf muscles back.
I will say I’m a big fan of this half marathon mileage. This weekend we”ll start off with a 5 mile run! As a long run! I won’t even need a Clif Shot or water break!
This will also be our first weekend of “winter weather,” so it looks like I’ll have to pull out the gloves, running tights, ear muffs, and running jackets that have been buried deep in the closet since March.
In other news, the other day I was listening to the radio while driving to work, and Kokomo by The Beach Boys came on. I love this song. It reminds me of lounging on the beach in Jamaica, (it reminds me of the movie, Cocktail, but I don’t think it is part of the soundtrack), and reminds me of Full House. I REALLY liked Full House growing up.
Aruba, Jamaica, Ooooh I wanna take ya
My day dream was rudely interrupted when I looked down at my stereo screen and realized that I was listening to the Oldies station.
Kokomo came out in 1988…I was well into my childhood in 1988. Songs from my childhood are being played on the OLDIES station.
Just thought I’d share.
Random question (that will become less random in the next few weeks): What kind of sunglasses do you like? I’m a big fan of the big bug ones or ones that look retro.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
