Are we all enjoying the countdown?!
Every day I get WAY more excited, and yes nervous lol.
I know, trust my training. I figure if I can run 20 miles with the fresh knee injury (prob a really dumb mistake but oh well!) ill be able to do the marathon with a fixed knee.
Still havent run on the knee yet, going to wait until wednesday or thursday, and will take it for a 4 mile test run. Tomorrow I am going to run in the POOL, and also do some swimming. I gotta keep my endurance up!
Went to my uncles office today. He did the laser and adjusted it and my hip and was SUPER pleased with how the knee was today!!!! YAY! And, when I left there, the knee felt back to normal. Stable. Which was a amazing feeling for me. And a confidence booster. His words were "Ice the HECK out of it, and come back Wed". So, thats my plan! Its bent (pillow under) and I have ice on it now. I took all my arnica and such and I'm feeling good about it. MUCH BETTER than last week!
a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you that have put in your song suggestions. I LOVE IT! And, I know it will be a HUGE help (and motivator) come sunday!
If anyone has any tips/advice/quotes ANYTHING for me regarding the marathon PLEASE feel free to SPILL!!!! You all have been on this entire journey with me from day one. (well most of you anyway LOL)
Work was blah, but i'm not EVEN concentrating on that this week! My head is all wrapped up with sunday.
Hope you all are doing FANTASTIC!
Oh and one other REALLY COOL thing..
My aunt was talking to me yesterday about running, my mom and our bad relationship and my younger sister Skyler (bad relationship there as well). She was telling me that the tide has changed in our family and I am the one thats motivating everyone. Those two will NEVER EVER admit that I motivated them, and will never give me any credit but they are both thinking about starting to run, and my sister wants to do a 5k on the cinco de mayo run (the same run that was my first HM). Weird huh? Then an EVEN COOLER thing happened.
My aunt told me she wants to start to run.
Now, my aunt is in amazing shape. She was a personal trainer, shes a tiny thing, shes the one that weight lifts and does pilates and has all the equipment in her garage. But shes never been into cardio. She told me that shes been so excited about MY marathon, and watching me leave and come back from my training runs, that its inspired her and made me want to train to run a 5k someday. That made my day, week, year, whatever to hear that come from her. I never EVER thought i would motivate ANYONE let alone the woman that I love more than anyone, and that inspires and motivates ME on a daily basis. Such a cool moment.
Anyway, love you guys! Talk to ya tomorrow!!!
