I’m heading into another race weekend. I’ll be participating in a relay race, which is an entirely new experience for me. The race is the Iowa Market to Market relay. As a team of 6, we will cover 75 miles, running from Jefferson to Des Moines, Iowa. We have two teams heading up, cleverly named Runaway Brides and Off Like a Prom Dress. I’ll be running with the prom dress crew. There will be costumes involved and surely lots of fun. I’m looking forward to sharing this new running experience with such a great group of ladies. Just imagine, 6 ladies, tucked neatly inside a Honda Pilot with coolers and overnight bags for about 15 hours. It’s bound to get a little crazy!
This week I’m taking it pretty easy as I recover from the marathon last weekend. Yesterday I did 2 easy miles around the neighborhood and today I started the day off with a 5 mile run on the treadmill. It feels good to shake out the legs. Last night I taught my Sunset Surprise class, and as promised, I’m going to leave you with a workout similar to what we did in class – here’s the weekly Tuesday Tickler! Did you try last week’s workout? What did you think?
Have you participated in a relay race before? Any last minute tips you might have for me?
