Run 12/30/2008

Florida morning – Today was perfectly overcast and cool – great running weather! It was even lightly misting when I first left for my run – I love that!

I ended up running 7 miles. I felt so good I could have done more, but I am still coming off being sick, so I didn’t want to push it. I hope there will be another overcast morning this week so I can get more good runs in while I am here!

I obviously have not been sticking to a running plan while I’ve been out here. Since I was sick and stuff that really threw off my plans. I am going to try and make a game plan tonight and see what I can do for the rest of the week. I only have 1 month left until the full mary and I have not had 1 successful run over 17 miles! That really scares me. Worst case scenario – I am going to end up walking the end of the marathon. I don’t want to do that since there is a time limit on finishing the course. Also, I don’t want to prolong it too much. This is not supposed to be a march to my death, it’s supposed to be fun, right?

I am going to shoot for a 20 miler the weekend I get back and see how that goes. I am scared that I won’t be able to run it all, but I have to try. I feel like I need more time to train and I wish I would have signed up for a marathon at least a month later that I did. Well, I have already spend like $100.00 for this one and after all this talk about it I have to do it. I am just scared about what is actually going to happen on race day. I don’t think I will be ready…
