Tally: 350cal P, 725cal C, 725cal F = 1800 total
Sleep: 8.25 hours in bed, 9p-515a, 91% quality. Awesomely, my phone did its recently-learned trick of changing the time 15 minutes back, so I got up late! Jerk! Felt good, just a little bit rushed.
Body: Slight digestion issues after forgetting supps last night, but otherwise I feel pretty good. Although, left glute feels slightly jacked-up again, noticed on class warm-up. Noon run to & from the post office w/ Lisa, 3.56 miles. Felt super easy!
Chins in AM only, 5x2. Elbows started feeling annoyed last night, just a little bit. Normal today, but I'd like to save up for tomorrow's session, as I think it may be a max effort day.
Acne: Still rather fierce. Ugh.
Brain: One week to Boston. I actually thought about it this morning with real and true excitement when I realized "At this time next week, I'll be on the shuttle to Hopkinton!" Excitement - what a concept!
This is something everyone has been telling me, I know, but it actually hit me today: I already had my awesome race when I qualified for Boston - I don't still have to be awesome when I actually do it.
And also, this is a great opportunity for me to give hope to a whole bunch of fellow runners... when they see me do a walk/run at Boston, when they compare where they are right now to where I am, they will realize they are ahead of me. And perhaps they will realize they are just as capable of crazy awesomeness as I once was. Maybe someone will be motivated to push themself just a little bit harder & a little bit farther because of my walking. And my little bleeding heart really likes that thought!
These were my Boston goals:
- Start the Boston Marathon.
- Don't get injured in the Boston Marathon.
- Finish the Boston Marathon.
- Enjoy the Boston Marathon.
- Run all of the Boston Marathon.
Grateful: For this, from my NSS peeps:
