WOW!! It really is upon me. 6 months ago when I said "I am doing this" I never dreamed it would come this fast. I am glad though. I am glad it is here and in one week from now I can say that I HAVE RUN A MARATHON!!! I still can't wrap my mind around that. I better believe it though b/c it is about to happen.
I had my last longish run on Saturday and it was only 6 miles. It went GREAT!! I pushed it and finished with an average of an 11 minute mile which is pretty fast for me considering it was over 3 miles. I can do 3 miles in that time often but anything over 3 miles I usually slow it down a little. I just wanted to push myself a little harder and frankly I wanted to get it over with. I felt great during and after the run and my knee is doing really well. Those prayers are paying off, keep them coming. It bothered me a few times during the first 1 1/2 miles then after that it never bothered me again. I am so relieved.
This week I just need to do three - 3 mile runs. I did one this morning and then I will do antoher either Tuesday and Thursday or Wednesday and Thursday. Of course the time change is throwing me for a loop. It is so hard to get up in the mornings anyway and now it is EVEN HARDER until I adjust to the time change. I need to try to make myself go to bed earlier at night. That is one of my goals for the week to be in bed no later than 10 and 9:30 would be better.
I need to start making my list of stuff that I need for the weekend so I have time to get anything that I don't have.
Oh, and I am eating better this week, last week was a free for all, my eating was really out of control. I have drawn back in the reigns though and am on a better path.
