I took Monday as a rest day after my 10miler on Sunday. My legs were a little sore and tight on Monday but loosened up throughout the day. Monday was a rough one at work so it was hard not to work off the stress but I managed through it. My eating was right on target.
Today I woke up at 4am and ran 4 miles on the treadmill. Yes, the treadmill AGAIN! The good news is that we are suppose to have a "heat wave" this week where the temperature will actually above freezing. I can't wait! My hamstrings were tight and sore for the majority of the day today. No other problems to report so far.
I signed up for the Shamrock Shuffle on March 21, 2010. I am very excited for this race. Not only will it be my first (in Chicago) of the season but Deena Kastor will be there. I am hoping to get a picture with her. She is such an incredible athlete and such an inspiration to all women runners!
3 weeks and 2 days until I leave for sunny California. The countdown is officially on!
My blog will follow my running journey up to and through my 1st Marathon... Chicago 2010! You will read about my inspirations, PRs (hopefully!), and of course my struggles. So feel free to share your stories as well!
