No, literally the sky is going to be falling – in the form of snow, Saturday morning…
Heavy Snow / Wind
This means my last long run, the long run I really need to do because last weekend I only did 14 miles will be snowed out. I asked some advice of fellow MDer and Marathoner, Roni.
She, and others, agreed that the sidewalks may be too slippery for a safe run, so I have two options:
1. Run today … but I can’t do the full 20 today as I don’t have 4 hours to devote to it, didn’t carb load and just ate cereal for breakfast (milk, then a long run=not a good idea)
2. Postpone the run until it’s a little safer on the sidewalks
So, it looks like I will be doing my long run on Monday. Hopefully by then the sidewalks will be cleared! I’m totally stressed about this right now and kicking myself for ranking out on my long run last weekend. I knew this would happen and I should have sucked it up!
Like I said, I just ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast. Even though I’m not super full, I know from past experience it’s best to stick with toast and PB for a pre-run meal.
I also had a banana with PB. I finally bought the crunchy salted PB again and had to dig into the jar!
Okay, I’m still freaking out about messing up my long run schedule since the last two weekends I did 8 miles and 14 miles. I don’t feel like I am properly trained for a marathon in 22 days! Just call me Chicken Little, because, “The sky is falling!!!!”
