Chronicling the adventures of a fleet-footed foodie and the journey to her first marathon and beyond
Thursday, July 29, 2010
Yeeehaw! Long weekend is almost upon us. Can't wait to chill for three whole days. Well...we're not exactly chilling but at least we're not working and that's always a good thing, no? We've heard a ton of good stuff about the movie Inception so we're checking that out Friday night - made by the same guy who directed the Dark Knight, which is on my list of all time favourite movies. And the movie has Leo D, how can you go wrong (yes, Leo...stare deeply into my eyes)? We've got some house-y stuff to do this weekend (mulching garden, hopefully painting Hubs bathroom) and then *insert scary music*....a 28K run.
Not really looking forward to it, I'll admit. I think I'm going to have to keep myself inspired because today for the first time, I had thoughts of "eff me, what the hell did I get myself into?!". I have at least a half dozen more really long runs, four of which are 30+ kilometres and honestly....I'm really getting tired physically and mentally. When they say that training for a marathon is a huge time commitment, they are NOT kidding. I think if I was doing a clinic, I may feel differently because essentially I'm training for this solo, and sometimes a little camraderie is a nice thing...people who totally understand what you're going through. I think I'm going to watch Spirit of the Marathon again to re-inspire myself. Yeah, that's the ticket!
