I have some good news and kinda bad news.
My achilles is all better!! Yahoooooooo
I've had the flu all week and I've been too weak to run! I did a quick 3/4 mile Saturday but I was too sick, I had to turn back. But my muscle didn't even feel tight. No pain at all. I've still been stretching it with lunges a few times a day. It seems to have helped.
I have a 5K Saturday night in Ft Meyers. It's an evening run! Sounds so cool. I know a few people who are going so even if I can't run it, I'm going to go to see how they do. I'm very worried what this setback will do to my time in the marathon. As soon as I'm able I'll get in at least a 10 mile run.
I saw an ad on tv about a 6 hour energy drink. Has anyone ever tried those? I'm curious to know if it really helps with energy for that long. It doesn't have caffeine in it, so I'm not sure what makes it work. My trainer Jim gave me a GU gel pack. I saved it to try it on my 20 mile run, but I haven't been able to run lately. I'm hoping I will VERY soon. I miss the solitude and freedom of running. I miss the exhileration I get from finishing a nice 5 mile run. I noticed also I'm not sleeping as well as I had been. Maybe because I've been laying around all week....LOL...
I plan to wear all pink. I embroidered my name on the back of the shorts I'm wearing in the marathon. They're PINK of course. I need to get a new top, I'll put my name on that too. I heard people yell out your name to give support, I'm all over that. I'll need all the support I can get.
I'll post as soon as I get a good run in. Kimmie, Sherry, Sherry (2 Sherry's, or Sherries????...LOL) and Jacki KEEP ON RUNNING GIRLIES!!!!! Thank you for your comments and support. It means the WORLD to me! Sherry and Jacki, we need to run together!!!! Just go easy on me....LOL!!!!!!!!
