Stretching: Mostly foam rolling
Outlook: I'm going to just do the marathon. I will most likely die in this marathon, but whatever - i'm just going to do it. My pace leader just ran the Lakefront 50k this weekend, and his story was so inspiring, that i feel like a total nerd being like "I'm undertrained and won't PR at this marathon" So what if i won't PR? It's kinda of nice to take the pressure off, and just run a marathon for fun. And if i come in last? Been there, done that. After the first time, it doesn't seem like such a big deal.
I'm still struggling to find that whole "work-life balance" thing. But i think I'm doing a lot better. I even bought a file folder this weekend which i feel is very responsible and adult-like of me. Sadly, its still sitting in the bag. You win some, you lose some. I am starting to get into a routine again, of when i can go to the gym, when i need to spend time with the dog, and so on. I spent all of last week in a training seminar for an engineering CAD program, and let me tell you - exercising your mind is every bit as exhausting as exercising your body!
|My brain is still sore.|
So i'm still here, and i am still running a marathon next month. I am also still reading everyones blogs at lunch, but for some reason i can't comment on my work computer. I am debating asking IT to resolve the issue, but it probably isn't the most professional way to spend my lunch break. Either way, just know i'm creeping on all of you. Vwa ha ha!
