I am so glad I decided to put on my glasses and look at my schedule (which hangs on the fridge) last night, otherwise I would have been doing a mile extra than I needed to each day!
I was setting things out so that I could get my ass up and at em early (another hot week here in Texas; 98 today!!!! grrrrr...) and get my run in under darkness, and I had walked into the kitchen and saw it said 5 miles. Whaaat? Yeahbaby! With no more treadmill to run on right now after work, morning runs are where its at until Fall decides to show up, which is supposedly this coming weekend...please oh please oh please!!!
So thats pretty much what my week looks like. There is some crazy ass speed workout on there for Wednesday, but I plan on just doing a tempo run. Or a progressive. Something.
At this point the hay is in the barn. I am not going to get any faster or any fitter 10 days out from race day.
What could happen is I could injure myself so I am just going to listen to my body, run what pace I think is doable on any given day and put a W in the column.
Every day I wake up and I realize its one day closer to me leaving for Chicago and one day closer to marathon day I get excited all over again. I would have to say that I am much more excited about Chicago this year than last year and I have no idea why.
Its different somehow, but yet I cannot put my finger on exactly why....maybe it will come to me eventually but right now I am just reveling in my giddiness!!!
Have a great Monday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
p.s. my run did happen this morning and good grief Charlie Brown was it hot and humid!! August we fired you 3 weeks ago! Pack your desk and leave!!!
