My training will commence next week. Taking this week off after running all 3 races this past weekend at Wine and Dine.

On a non training note, it's really starting to look like my friend can't go sad

Sounds like everyone is doing great!!!! Way to go friends!

Me on the other hand, probably won't participate. After the wreck on Monday I've been having more problems with my legs. I didn't think anything was wrong but the pain hasn't let up the last few days. I also have a huge bruise on my left leg so not really sure how it happened though...

I'll just have to take it as it comes I guess.

I'm trying to get back to walking, but my sleep schedule is so messed up right now that it's hard. My hope is to get to the gym tomorrow so we can get this thing done and hope on that cruise ship with medals around our necks!

I was slacking last week and didn't get anything done over the weekend. sarcastic Back at it last night - 3 miles on the elliptical and 1 on the treadmill. Got my long run in somehow or other. I'm trying out a new routine for this week - Monday, Wednesday, Friday instead of Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Tues/Thurs are usually pretty packed and it's hard to find the time and energy to eat lunch and get to the gym after work. (No really, I seriously don't have the time to eat lunch most days) We'll see how it goes!

The training schedule says 2 30 minutes runs and a 2 mile run this weekend. I'm running a Turkey Trot 5K with some friends from work on Sunday and it's supposed to be a lovely 32 degrees on race day. Yay? My countdown timer says 100 days to go. How did that happen?! eek

I was hoping to at least get some walking in this week. I got sick. Hopefully next week.

So the Turkey Trot went splat for me. waiting Race temps were low 20's with a windchill and I was having trouble feeling my feet at the start. I was also having a much harder time breathing (snotty nose) and the wind felt like it was in your face no matter what direction I was heading. Couldn't find my work buddies and then my phone died a half mile in. No idea of my pace, nothing to time intervals, no idea what my actual time was and NO MUSIC! eek eek eek Not gonna lie - I seriously thought about quitting right there. Fortunately, my feet kept going when my brain was like "I'm out!". Still, pretty discouraging. Thanks to Kristen K for talking me off the ledge and mopping me up afterwards - gotta love Facetime!

Five miles for my next long run. Not going to give up - one foot in front of the other.

This is the perfect example of why you should NOT feel discouraged. Pretty much everything that can make a race horrible and make you want to quit happened. But guess what? YOU. DIDN'T. QUIT. You should be so proud of yourself! I am! Running is very much a mental game. The mental aspect is usually much harder than the physical aspect. One of my favourite quotes is "Your legs are not giving out. Your head is giving up. Keep going."

You're going to rock that 5 miles! mickey

Those are some good reservations! Is Trattoria al Forno the breakfast with Rapunzel and Flynn?
