Friday Already???

This week flew by!
I'm back to my classes and feeling so much better. It's weird to do the spin class and actually feel my legs. I still have a little weakness on the right side, arm and leg, but I'm going to get back to machine workouts. I totally feel it in yoga. My balance seems to have improved though. Maybe the seizure meds?? Not sure. I'll see the doc soon.

I'm meeting Reg (from Canada!!!) at the gym this morning for a little 3-4 miler. We have an 8-10 miler planned for Saturday. I need to see where I'm at since that half marathon is only 3 weeks away. Reg even said it was freezing here!

The only half I've done is the one I "ran" with that IT band yank. So my PR is 2:30. As painfully ego bashing as that felt that day, I'm kinda happy about it now because I can probably beat that at least by a minute or two...LOL

I tested my coach the other day to see if he "yeses" me about my abilities. I asked him if he thought I could go for the full instead. He gave me that "coachy" look that only they can give and said "don't be ridiculous". Ok, ok. I was kidding. Kinda. I don't know what it is about the marathon that pulls me in.

Good luck with the half-er, Sister.

Hey, here's a phrase in your post that must be a typo:

"from Canada!!"

I think you meant:

"from Canada??"

Because "from Canada" followed by exclamation points makes no grammatical or syntactic sense whatsoever. It's like a poodle on a unicycle - it just makes you want to go, "Hmmm, I wonder if I can actually count and catalog all the things that are unnatural about this spectacle ..." Getting excited about Canada is like getting excited about spotting a Z-grade celebrity, like Jerry Springer or the guy who played Newman on Seinfeld or something.

Melanie, don't read this comment!

Too late, i already have, which didn't help with the request that i posted last night...

Thank you Kim for getting excited about Canada... and for sharing our 'cold' temperatures, if only for a short time.

It's Canada! I love Canada. Our neighbors to the north. They gave us Rush! And creeps who come across to Maine with a bloody axe!

I don't know what it is about a marathon that pulls you in either. Trust me. I think you're all nuts! Loveable, but nuts!
