I’m not sure who this lady in the background is –
but she wears support hose when she races and kicks my ass on a regular basis. Whomever you are – I hope I’m just like you someday. Be sure and note my double chin in this picture.
Today I am suffering from OCWD – obsessive compulsive weighing disorder. I have only weighed myself once today and I am sitting here at work wondering if I should go to Target at lunch to weigh myself on one of their scales. My teeth hurt from gritting so much because I know this is WRONG – but I can’t help myself – someone please make these thoughts go away.
Other imaginary illnesses I’m having today:
Allergic Bronchial spasms – convincing myself that I’m actually having a heart attack.
Knees hurt because of my I can’t swallow large pills syndrome – glucosamine.
Carpel tunnel syndrome – from blogging too much
Death from hunger
I am not my clothes, I am my shoes syndrome

I have to say my workout today was pretty lame – a better workout would have been to stay in bed and sleep in. At points I was going so slow that the elliptical trainer kept blinking – stride faster – because I wasn’t going fast enough to register movement. Tomorrow I am doing a five mile race – and it will be so hot – I really need to start drinking some water today.

I was not sure if I should take today as a recovery day or not, but since Kim has instilled the fear of God in me, I think I will hit the gym for some light jogging during Kenza’s soccer practice – he he. Thanks Kim – I’ll dedicate my 4 hours to you!

Today was a good long run, took it at a pretty slow by steady pace and it felt good. I walked 2 miles, then ran 17, and walked one (total 20 miles.) My 2 mile walk was around 30 min, then my 17 mile run was 3:30 on the dot, and then a 15 min walk.
My 17 mile pace was 12:21 – (I’m giving myself leeway for being on my period) -I’m not discouraged, it felt really good and I had so much energy left for the entire day – I steam cleaned the carpets, mopped the floors, cleaned the entire house, did all the laundry. I also went to target and did some grocery shopping.
I am so ready for Chicago – I doubted myself for a while but I am back in shape. I know when I run Chicago I will run a 4 hour marathon. I will push myself, it will be hard – but I WILL do it, and if I don’t I will allow all of you to beat the crap out of me when I return!!
