On Wednesday I ran a fairly strong 6 miles early with Massoman. Today was 8 miles. 8 miles of knee pain. Which I’m going to ignore and pretend didn’t happen. On Sunday a 10-mile run is scheduled, but some overachievers are changing things and running 12. I think that’s called cheating. So I guess I now have to run 12 as well. That will be my last long run before the marathon. Next week are just two easy peasy short runs.
I’m not sure what to expect this time around. It’s been a long time since I’ve run a marathon; San Diego in June 2006 was my last one. I’ve trained more than I did for that race, but less than I did for the Chicago Marathon in 2005. I’m not making any time predictions this time around either because I’d only be jinxing myself.
If anyone cares to follow, I am number 35417. Now, I just need to decide what to wear. Life is a constant challenge.
*Thanks Amy, I don’t feel so old now.
