Today Erica, Laura, and I set off for Seattle. Tomorrow we are going to take on the Seattle Hot Chocolate 15K. We signed up for this race months ago. Finally the big weekend is here!
We were in multiple traffic jams. Starting in Tacoma, no surprise there. Downtown Traffic was miserable too. Where is everyone going?! By the time we got to Seattle we were hungry. We hit up a sushi place which was perfect. Sodium, Carbs, not too heavy so we could still eat dinner.
We also got to sample the hot chocolate. It was good! Erica is on a crazy cleanse so she did not try any. She is going to wait until tomorrow and go ALL OUT! Laura or I may have to drive home because Erica is in the back seat in a sugar coma!
Goals for TOMORROW: Gauge where I am at and what needs to happen before racing the Shamrock 15K. I do not necessarily want to PR tomorrow but if it happens accidentaly…I will take it!
My plan has me warming up for 20 mins. Then 3 x 20 mins decending. Each 20 minutes faster then the last. Then give it all I have left and finish STRONG! Time will tell. It may or may not be raining tomorrow also which sometimes is a factor!
We are off to carb-load!
Anyone racing this weekend?
