The training is going well--we are now 45 days away from the race. Can I just say I'M STARTING TO REALLY GET NERVOUS.
There is a lot going on to keep me busy, but I have managed to get my scheduled runs in. I've decided that I will just forge ahead and see what happens. I have to admit when I have to do the long runs I'm pretty sore. So I've decided to run my 10 miles tomorrow because I am doing a lot of prep work for a dinner I am making for 11 on Saturday and on Sunday. I have to add that I'm lovin my Garmin. Allan gave it to me for Christmas and I have really struggled with figuring it out. Now that I know how to use it IT IS SO MUCH FUN. I love that it will show me exactly where I ran on google map. (The little controlling me wonders if a parent could put it on a child you were a little worried about and know exactly where they had been ; )
Running the hills continues to be tough--I managed to get in 6 hills yesterday. The goal is to try to run each one pretty close to the same speed and most of mine were the same--I think one was about 20 seconds slower (and the funny thing was, it wasn't the last one ; )
I went today and finally got fitted for my orthotics. Sure hope they help with the foot and knee pain--otherwise that was a big expense down the drain.
Sidenote: We have Stake Conference this weekend, and the funny thing is the GA we are having is the same one that Elder Rob is having at his Stake Conference in a couple of weeks ; )
