I just did not want to come to work today. When the alarm went off, it was all I could do to get out of bed. I feel fine and no real soreness from my 12 miles on Saturday. This coming Saturday or Sunday is 13.1 miles. After that distance, I am in “no man’s land” as far as distance is for me. Aug 16 is 10 miles (walk back week), Aug 23 is 15 miles, Aug 30 is 16 miles!
It’s day #51 of “marathon training.”
It’s less than 76 days before I attempt 26.2 at RnR St. Louis!!!
Today is supposed to be rest day from running but I do need to get in 45 minutes of cardio-boxing tonight. I can do that in the cool basement and not have to worry about the heat that came back to visit Mid-Mo today.
Daniel is supposed to come spend the week with us here in Columbia next week. I’m excited and he seems excited but he will likely sing another tune when he has to leave his parents for the first time for more than one day.
It will be a challenge for me to get my running miles in while Daniel is here. I might be a slacker that week! 🙂
Also, I am ready for some vacation time. 🙂 I’m pretty much missing Santa Cruz. I’m friends with people from there and the constant posting of awesome pictures is making me heart-sick. It’s the time (usually) for our yearly 2 week vacation in the Bay area. Santa Cruz, San Fran, Napa, Monterey, Carmel…. *sigh*
Forgive for a few more pictures…..I’m daydreaming…..
