Upcoming Races

I've just spend the last 30 minutes planning out my practice races leading up to my next Half Marathon! Can you believe that it is only 13.5 weeks away?! I plan to do short runs for the next week and a half and then I'm going to GET SERIOUS 12 weeks out. I plan to follow the Hal Higdon Intermediate plan this time, but modified because running 5 days a week is a bit much for me! I want to fit in more cross-training and yoga, so I'll be shooting for 3-4 days a week of running. Also, I don't think I blogged about this yet, but I signed up for my 3rd Half Marathon before even starting training for my 2nd. Kind of crazy, but I wanted to get the early bird special discount. My 3rd half will be 12 weeks after my 2nd, which should be NO problem! {fingers crossed!} So here is a list of my planned races:

Sunday, August 28th- 8am- 4 mile End of Summer Fire Run- My plan called for a 5K, but what's an extra .9 miles?!
Sunday, September 25th- 8am- AIDS 10K Run
Sunday, October 30th- Rock N Roll LA 1/2 Marathon

Sunday, January 22nd- 7:30am- Carlsbad 1/2 Marathon

I want to check out Holiday races between my 2nd and 3rd half, but will probably wait until my 2nd half is over to figure that out! I love having things planned, so I can look forward to them and now I am excited for these new race distances (4 miler and 10K) coming up!
