All day I couldn’t stop grinning. It took me a while to figure out why I was even more happy than usual but finally I came to a conclusion. I remembered my dream from last night, in which I accomplished my biggest goal that I have right now….. I ran a sub 3 hour marathon. That is 240 seconds faster than my last marathon and that is about 9 seconds faster per mile. I know I can do it, after all that was only my third marathon.
The first thing that popped into my mind was that my knee is feeling better and so I better get my training going! I mean Boston is only five and a half months away.
Then, I realized that the best thing that I could be doing right now to reach my *DREAM* is to continue to let my knee heal and rest. I have been in constant marathon training mode for the last year, it is time for a break. It is time for me to fuel my body with nutrient-dense foods and to get stronger….. speaking of which I went to a killer pump class this morning. My muscles were shakin towards the end. I also did 15 minutes on the stairs.
Did I mention I had to scrape snow off of my car this morning. That is ridiculous! On the bright side… bring on the Holidays!
Started the morning with some vitamins and oatmeal (pb and apples). For lunch I had soup and a salad. Afternoon snacks included a special K protein bar, 2 apples and a cheese wedge. Do you like the face I made with it.
During PE I kicked a home run in kickball. Come on, I needed to brag about it somewhere!
