I feel like I haven't posted in forever, and well, that can be because the whole getting ready for New York really overwhelmed me. Let's just say, when I left for NY on Thursday night, I was so excited, a ball of nerves, and really any emotion I can muster up. I was getting ready to accomplish my 2012 goal, run the NYC Marathon. On my way back, I was another ball of emotions, the complete opposite. I will get to that post another day, but wanted to reiterate that because when you see my miles, so low, you know it was the week before "THE MARATHON" that never happened.
So, ladies and gents, grab a button and link up!!
Last Sunday, I manages to get 13 amazing miles in but was so sore for the next few days. I think I went out harder than I thought I did for the half marathon. After that, it was rest, rest, rest, NY was less than a week away. That is what I thought about all week; while at work, driving, sleeping, eating, etc. My life revolved around this race.
I didn't get much other exercise in because I wanted my muscles to be nice and fresh for race day.
Wednesday I wanted to get a 2-3 mile run in, but boy was I busy. I didn't settle down till after 9, which is late for me!
Thursday I worked and went straight to the airport. The race was still on.
Friday Morning I woke up and went to the Expo. My family and I walked around and shopped. That counts as exercise right? I thought so. I later walked home from a Team in Training dinner once I heard the Marathon was cancelled, again, more on that in another post.
Saturday, with all the crazy emotions, I had to get out, I had to run. I put on my new orange NYC Marathon shirt and went for a run in central park. I didn't have any idea what I wanted to do. I ran for 4. It was short and sweet, and just as I was headed home, I wanted to keep going. Unfortunately, the family was waiting for me for lunch.
Sunday, back on the airplane.
Now that I do not have a recovery, you should see much higher miles from me as now it is GO time for Disney's Goofy Challenge!
Also, I am headed out tonight for my first track practice in over two years! This should be interesting!
