Journey to the Race: Day 14

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together"
-African proverb

Happy Easter!
Unfortunately I didn't have a good night. I was awake early and couldn't get back to sleep for any real length of time because of weird and frustrating dreams. Finally ended up reading in bed before getting up for breakfast. Four of us doing the race decided to go for a run today since the group training was cancelled for the holiday. We ran/jogged/speed walked for 5km (took about an hour) with stops for quick workouts every kilometre or so. For the workouts we did either 1) 20 jumping jacks, 20 jump squats, 20 squats, then hold a squat for 20 seconds or 2) 20 high knees, 20 seconds of quick feet drill, and 10 lunges each leg then hold it for 20 seconds each. Started very rough and my lungs gave me a lot of trouble today but I made it. Once we got home, I did an ab workout with some pilates, pushups, side plank, and lots of crunches. Feeling good but very tired. Hope you're all having a good easter weekend :)
