|Maybe I should quit lobbying and go into the t-shirt designing business.|
1. Wake up early and don't make your bed
2. Jog 1 mile to the race start line.
3. Race 10 miles through the cherry blossoms (finished in 1:40:19).
4. Stretch and eat a banana and muffin.
5. Jog 5 miles to the arboretum where you see more cherry blossoms:
6. Take a potty break and take off your ankle braces/switch your socks for dry ones (then put your ankle braces on your arms like wrist guards so you look like a tool).
7. Run 2 miles.
8. Walk 1/2 mile to eat the extra muffin you snagged from the race.
9. Jog 2 miles (don't let that muffin come up).
10. Walk 1/2 mile because you feel like your left hip could actually split in half.
11. Suck up the pain and shuffle/jog/limp your sorry ass home because you're so hungry you could eat your right arm (2 miles).
12. Try to stretch/foam roll your geriatric hip without screaming in pain and worrying your neighbors.
13. Make an enormous amount of chili and cornbread.
14. Take advantage of having your cousin's car for the weekend and take your chili out to the 'burbs (very carefully) to share it with your great-aunt and great-grandma.
15. Relax in bed watching the Academy of Country Music Awards.
Things I learned from this training run that I will change for the full marathon:
1. Don't eat french fries and drink beer the night before.
2. Don't stay up til 11:30 the night before.
3. SPF 90 sunscreen only works if it is sweat-proof.
Oh, and I also had a spa-day with my friend Laura on Saturday. Got my toes done a crazy color:
What a wonderful weekend I had!
1. How was your weekend?
2. If you've done a marathon what was the longest run you did before the race?
