Just 5 days away now! I’m so excited, nervous, not sure how I feel. Yikes!
Yesterday I went on an 8 mile run, and let me tell you, it felt so good do a long run that wasn’t in the double digits! I ran with Katie who is training for a half marathon! It was a great run =)
Today at work, I was totally in brain fart mode all day. I just couldn’t seem to get my brain engaged at all, and every time I would walk out of my office I would completely forget what I was going to do. Also, my computer got the blue screen of death, so that was bad.
Anyways, I was going to take a rest day today, but it was so nice outside, I couldn’t stand to sit around, so I went for a walk!
So gorgeous out! I love fall, except that it makes my nose drip.
Also, I *finally* got my hands on this book:
FINALLY! I’ve had it on hold at the library for like 3 months (because I’m too cheap to buy it), and there were probably 60+ holds on it! I’m going to want to finish the whole thing tonight, but I’d best not. Boo for having to get up early in the morning.
So, now that I’m down to the last days before the marathon, I have to start thinking about the details! So many silly little things to worry about!
1) Should I make a new playlist? I hate doing playlists because they’re a pain in the butt, so maybe I’ll just buy a few new mixes from Rock my Run. Any song suggestions?
2) What should I wear? It was easy when it was hot, but now it’s pretty borderline cold in the morning, but later in the day it’ll heat up to 70…weather confused!
3) What should I eat the day before? I’ve heard you should lay off the fiber and dairy before a race…but I can’t give up my beloved milk! Did I mention that I love milk? Also, I have no pasta in my house, and mac and cheese sounds really good right now.
4) Should I carry my Camelback during the race? I’m used to wearing it, so that won’t be a problem, and it makes it easier to carry snacks/phone/water, but it would be nice to not have to carry it. Hmm….
Any other last minute tips?
