I am happy to report that I made it to the gym Monday afternoon and got in a solid 60 minutes of weight training. I have to say it was a little hard to get to the gym. All I wanted to do was go home and relax but I knew I would regret it if I didn't go.
Today after work I got in a 4 mile run on the treadmill. This was a good run for me. I added in 2 fartleks. I felt really good after the run with no soreness.
I am going to try and get in another strength training today either tomorrow evening or Thursday but if it doesn't happen I am ok with that.
5 days till Surf City! I am almost all packed. I leave tomorrow night to start my vacation. Woo Hoo! I am really looking forward to not only the run but also spending some QT with my dad.
Here's hoping everything goes well in the race. I will be back on after the half marathon to report how everything went. I really feel well prepared but you always get on the start line with some skepticism b/c 13.1 miles is a long way to go and anything can happen. Wish me luck!
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!
