I’ve never written a race recap for a virtual race — fun!
When I saw Michele was putting together Race for Recovery, I couldn’t sign up fast enough. What a COOL idea and for such a great cause. She got some pretty awesome well-deserved publicity for it, too.
So I’ve had the race on my calendar for almost a month now, and I knew we were having a holiday party the night before for some time, but I ended up having (perhaps) too much fun last night. And that’s when I decided the best thing about this virtual race was that I could do it at 6 p.m. on the Lifetime Fitness treadmill after I had almost recovered.
Due to nausea all day (when did hangovers become so hard to recover from? Lesson learned: I’m not 21-years-old anymore) I didn’t eat much and didn’t properly hydrate, so the 5K wasn’t necessarily easy. However, I’m pretty darn happy with my result!
We’re supposed to get a bunch of snow tonight so we’ll see what tomorrow brings in terms of working out. I was planning on a spin class, but maybe some yoga in my living room will be a better option 🙂
