Six days until the frigging Marathon.
To prepare, I've been eating like a pig and sleeping like a log. I'm sure the five pound food baby in my belly will come in real handy at around mile 23!
I've only run 13 miles in two weeks, and will only run 2-3 miles this week, if that. Yikes. My entire body was in a lot of pain all of last week; I literally felt like I had been run over by a truck. It may also have had something to do with the six hours of LA traffic... Yikes. Thank the heavens for drugs. (Aleve) Oh, and pounds of food helped too. (Specifically, hand-made persimmon cheesecake, pumpkin pie, stuffing, bacon, ice cream, dim sum, Animal style fries... oh yes!)
I'm so glad Thanksgiving happened during taper week. Great excuse to rest up and Carbo-load :)
I met up with some of my favorite high school friends in Venice this weekend and it went a little like this:
After this trip, I'm even more serious about wanting to move further down the CA coast. I've been thinking about it for a while now... Santa Barbara is a great town and all, but it's really sleepy, small, and frankly, a place for older people. I don't really know what I'm gonna do... The new year is gonna bring with it some major decision making time!
Anyhoo... while jogging in Venice, we also saw a BUNCH of people training for the LA marathon in March, which I am considering running. And I found out one of my best friends is gonna start training for a half marathon! I was beyond excited.
But for now, all I know is that I am in denial about the fact I'm running 26.2 miles this weekend. Time to hit up that bowl of cereal :)
