Ok, I tried to run Tuesday morning and it was not a go. I walked 2 miles with Mike and was miserable.
It took some thinking and settling in my head and my heart, but I decided to step back and think about what was really important to me in the long run. No pun intended but I'll take it...
I think if I want to be running when I'm old, like 50, I need to pay attention to my body. Even a year ago I couldn't have dreamed I'd be planning on any running, never mind my 2nd marathon in 8 months, so I need to rejoice in that.
I have changed my registration from full marathon, to the half. I feel surprisingly almost ok with that. My husband and I will still be going away for the weekend without the kidlings, I can still hear Dick Beardsley's speech and if it gets tough running the half I won't have too far to go. I could probably even con someone into giving me a piggy back ride across the finish line.
So that's what's going on over here. I'll be healing for a little while. Make some jewelry. Monogram some towels, no running for at least a week I guess. So you guys write up some good posts to keep me entertained please. I'm still looking forward to Nitmos's "Lust" post. That should be highly entertaining....LOL
Tata for now....
