Rest day today

I'm still so excited about yesterday's run - even though I was a little slower than expected - the entire run was hilly and I finished really strong. I feel great today - a little sore thru the shoulders and have a fair amount of chaffing, but other than that, my body feels GREAT - and am really happy about it. Mentally this was a great challenge for me to overcome - hills have always been one of my major weaknesses.

I don't know if it is possible or not, but I feel likeI built some serious strength in my legs yesterday. Can that happen after just one run? Will it stick with until Oct 9th for the Chicago Marathon - hopefully, I must stick with my training though.

Tomorrow is just 30 min of cross training and some weights, but Wed is an 8 mile tempo run. Not sure what that will end of being - we'll see.

FYI - I'm starving and eating everything I can get my hands on today.

Well SOMEONE was supposed to meet SOMEONE in the breakroom, but SOMEONE had to go see SOMEONE else.

Hee. That was fun.

OMG that is so great about your run! I have had the eating everything days before. You know it is bad when you start thinking that really old bag of chips in the vending machiene looks good!

Feeling really hungry is normal - you're doing lots of training. Not long to go now - the marathon will be here before you know it. Look at me - its all done now, I'm feeling a bit stiff, have just been for a massage. Just don't go and overdo it now - you won't achieve any more fitness in 2 weeks.

Hi Susan,

Thanks for the note of encouragement on my blog the other day. I wish I was really fast!

Keep up the program, the last weeks before the taper will make a difference on the big day.

Are you using body glide? I find it great to eliminate chafing.
