Today was supposed to be my 20 mile run..which I have been dreading all week long. Well the 20 miler didn't happen this morning. I pushed it off until tomorrow morning. I didn't think it would go very well today because I just was so tired yesterday and didn't have the dinner that I wanted to have before my last long run before the marathon. I ended up sleeping in late too so I think it was a good choice to run on Sunday. So rather than hate life I will complete my long run tomorrow morning.
This morning I have been super productive. I took Riley on a long walk. Thinking I will take him on another longer walk in a few before it gets really warm today. I am now cleaning my house (well not really cleaning my house right now since I am on the computer) With school starting and running I just haven't been keeping up with things around the house like I would like to. I have a mowed yard and the vacuum still gets run..but the place just needs a really good cleaning. :) Looks like today is the day for it! I would also like to do some yard work this evening but we will see if that happens. What I really need is a maid..anyone want to apply?? I can't really pay you so the pay would be the knowledge that my house is clean and you did it :)
After this week I have three more weeks until my first full marathon! Yikes! I will say that I don't think I will be running another anytime soon. It just takes too much time out of my schedule to train. The night before a long run I have to make sure I am in bed early and have eaten something that will work on a long run. It is just a lot of running. I much prefer a half marathon. Training for a half marathon does not take over your life which I sort of like. :)
Yesterday I was looking at some shoes and found my Pure Cadence pretty cheap at Finishline.com. 70 dollars. Its like Christmas in October! I love getting a shoe deal!
