Online Countdown Clock
14 November 2015: Sweet Tea Half in Summerville, SC
18-21 February 2016: Glass Slipper Challenge weekend + 5k in Orlando, FL (Disney World)
02 April 2016: Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC
-Run the Greenway in West Ashley.
-Run the bridge again/run more with Teh German who really pushes my pace.
Accomplishments:I didn't even have to really talk Teh MD-AR into running the Sweet Tea 1/2 with me. It was just meant to be. She reminded me that she's visiting in November and the Sweet Tea 1/2 just so happens to be the weekend that she is here. Annnnddd she's running her Army 10 Miler a few weeks before so it's really not much more training to scale up 3 miles. Wiiiiiiiinnnnnn. Teh German also mentioned running it, but we'll see. He wasn't impressed with the price.
I added the Sweet Tea 1/2 event to RunKeeper. Gold star for me.
I got tramp stamp chafing during my Navy-AF 1/2. I'm not even sure why/how since the shorts I wore were Navy shorts that I've owned for a long time and I've never had an issue. I could feel the tag rubbing my back around mile 3, but I just shifted my shirt (throughout the race) and powered through it.
That said, I purchased Body Glide AND Gooch Guard to combat the underboob #chafingsagaof2015. After the Body Glide didn't work on a 3 mile run, I was pissed and took to Amazon to find something better and I discovered Gooch Guard and several other chamois (wtf does that mean, I'm seriously too afraid to google it) creams. I figured if it was for balls (I made the assumption since it was for bikers) it would have to be better, right? Whatever. I slathered on Body Glide, I rubbed on the Gooch Guard, and I wore my original running bras (please never die bras, plllleeeeaasssee) and I was underboob chafing free. Too bad I still wasn't chafe-free.. Le siiiigh.
At one 1.5ish weeks after the 1/2, I'm back to running. It was difficult continuing to run because I was hurting so bad, but after 2 sessions in 1 week with the chiropractor, I was way better than I was after my Divas 1/2.
October Goals:-Keep training for my Sweet Tea 1/2.
-Get my pace down.
-Try out Crossfit.
-Don't get hurt.
We're keeping it simple this month to try to avoid hitting that running wall again.
Wanna be friends on RunKeeper and stalk each other? Yes, please.
Linking up with Alyssa and Tracy!
Countdowns make it more real!
