TGIF! I was totally going to swim this AM but when my alarm went off at 4:30, my brain screamed at me, “SLEEP! WE WANT MORE SLEEP!” and the thought of my 22 mile long run tomorrow helped me make the not-so-tough decision to stay in bed. Unfortunately, I had planned to meet Meghan but since I’m a terrible workout buddy, I asked her to keep sleeping as well. REALLY hope Coach Steve doesn’t yell at us. Hi Coach Steve! It’s all my fault!
I’ve had an off week in terms of running and I know it’s because I’m tired. I’ve got five weeks and two days to go until my marathon and I’m feeling the fatigue. My heels continue to mess with me. One day they feel fine, the next they are sore. On the plus side the soreness is on the back of my heels and not under where the dreaded PF resides.
I had a stellar track workout on Tuesday and then got a massage on Wednesday. Now, when I say massage, I don’t mean the relaxing kind. I mean, I go in, tell my therapist, Lisa, what’s hurting and she proceeds to beat the snot out of me. On the one hand, I typically feel better after a day or two, but on the other hand, it really takes me a day or so before I can run and not want to quit after a mile. Thus, my Thursday AM run was total poop. All that being said, I’m hopeful that my 22 miler tomorrow will be nice and easy. (Who says that about 22 miles? A girl can dream, right?)
Enough about me, let’s talk about YOU and the cool shirt you can win! (Dudes, this would make a fab gift for the holidays so be sure to enter too!)
