I think last weeks blogger meet up at Yogurtland had an affect on him. In case you're wondering, that is blue frozen yogurt with "bobo balls" in it. (Whatever those things actually are, I have no idea, but he loved them). Good times, eh?!
On to other news...
I'm feeling decent. If the marathon were only an 8 mile race, then I wouldn't feel worried. But, it's not- so, enter worry.
I ran 6 miles on Saturday and felt pretty good. My leg felt tight (not painful or sore) during part of the downhill about halfway through, so I stopped and stretched and then walked down to the bottom of the little hill. After that I had NO problems whatsoever. I can't remember what our pace was exactly... 8:45? I'm too lazy to look it up.
I rested until today (Tuesday), and this morning I ran 2 miles at an 8:19 pace; I wasn't pushing it, but I wasn't trying to go really slow either. I felt a little sore. I've been able to feel it multiple times throughout the day. Boo to that.
My PT was out of town and I left a message to get in hopefully sometime tomorrow. I've already decided I'm not going to run at all until the marathon. It's pretty sad when your PT is one of your Facebook friends. Seriously. I should be his sponsor or something.
I'm going to toe that start line, and I honestly can't say whether I'll be running 2.62 miles, or 26.2 miles. Either way, I'm excited to take part in the experience. I have some incredible friends to cheer on (Go Darcy, Mindy and Cory!!!), and I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH. Whether I can run this one or not, my next marathon I am going to kick some serious trash.
Here's to Ogden Marathon 2012!!!!
3 days until the waiting is over.
