Recovery Day 3/Rollin’ Down A Hill


Nov 17, 2010

So, as I was driving down the road to get my check in order to run my errands for the day, my check engine light came on. I thought I would be able to make it to the post office. Nope, the starter light started blinking. Then as the light turns green, my car starts smoking, shuts off, and begins to roll back down the hill. OMG. A lady who was behind me tried to divert the traffic and helped me get my car off the main road. The cars did not stop at all(except to stare at me). The cops finally came and pushed my car out of the way. Then the tow truck came. The lady drove me to get my check and took me to the tow place. Well, I was given an ungodly price for fixing. So, I took a taxi home. Then I had to have the tow truck bring my car to the house(because everyone that I talked to today said get a second opinion blah blah blah). What all of these well meaning people do not seem to understand is that I CANNNOT DRIVE MY CAR!!! So how am I supposed to get other opinions? 
Then there is the whole, how am I supposed to get the money to buy the parts… 
What a day! 
The only thought that has been going through my mind for the last few hours is that maybe the half marathon proved that I could totally walk the 6 miles to work… idk 

Recovery Day 2


Nov 16, 2010

So, I did an easy three miles today(stretched before and after) and just walked. I felt a lot better. Ran around trying to apply for jobs. Just got home and I am eating Potato, Broccoli, and cheese soup with collard greens yum! 
I hope you are all having a great day 🙂 

Recovery Day 1/Rest


Nov 15, 2010

Today I am resting as best as I can. I limped my way to the store to get gas and saw the race results in the paper. Even though 30 some thousand people registered, only 27,000 people ran yesterday. I came in at 17,732(lol). 
After I do a bit of recovery, I will be working on marathon training(even though I will only be racing halfs for a while). 

I hope you are all having a great day 🙂 

Training Day 172/Resting


Nov 13, 2010

So I made a race playlist. I pinned my bib on my shirt. I have everything laid out. I am ready to go. 
Now, I am just resting. I’m just a little nervous. I am very excited. Most of the people racing are doing the half. 
Hope you are all having a great weekend 🙂
