What I am working for with this race is to get the three medals...RnR Mardi Gras, RnR Dallas and then the 26.2 Musical Miles.
If you run 2 RnR races in one year you can get this medal! I am completely and totally excited about this one. I am hoping to maybe PR in the RnR Dallas with a sub 2:30. We will see if that happens. I have also added another half marathon to my list. I am going to be running The Gusher 2 weeks before RnR Dallas. The Gusher will be a sort of training run for me.
I am having to bump up my mileage a mile to two miles each week on my long days since I have such a short time period to run. I ran 6 miles this past week on my long day and this week I have 8 miles. I am feeling good while running, so hopefully I can keep it up.
My question to all of you that may or may not read my blog is; What do you think of compression socks?
I have heard some people like them and some people do not? What is the benefits of wearing them when you are running. What are the downsides about them. Where is a good place to get them from? How do they help? I am curious and would possibly like to try them for my next race that I am running if they will help.
Any advice or suggestions is greatly needed. Thanks everyone!
