It's a completely odd feeling. I have been kind of on clould nine since finishing that 38km run. Sure it was not in a killer time. But Doing it in well under four and a half hours is pretty swell. It gives me the confidence boost to know YES I CAN run that marathon. And I will finish in an impressive fashion.
|Speaking of impressive fashion...I just found these sox! OMG. |
They are on my MUST HAVE list. Seriously. Martinis and Running? oh yes!
now...where was I? oh yes...my legs.
Sure my legs are tired. I feel it in my muscles a bit. But not like i THOUGHT it would be. Limping and sore, and dragging around.
Well, I guess the running 4-6 times a week since June is showing. My persistence in training has given me new legs. And stamina. And endurance. And a nice ego boost.
Here's to a solid few more weeks of training before the BIG taper begins.
I cannot tell you how RELIEVED I am to be excited about the Marathon and not worried, stressed or shitting bricks. Cause I was a couple weeks ago, let me assure you I was shitting bricks. I was completely ready to change the distance to a half marathon and be relieved. Now, I am ready to take on that Mara.
Come What May. (and yes, for those of you who know me...I am singing that out LOUD!)
