Well, my first poll has closed now and the results are in: 74% thought IG's pants would have have serious poop in them. And for the real story?? IG accepted it all without a blink. Cool as a cucmber that one! ;)
I had a great 18.04 mile run this morning. Total miles this week: 42.24. It occurred to me today whilst running, that all those miles you put in are really only for the last 6 or so miles of the race. Because that is when all the training (mental too) pays off. The first few miles are nothing -- it's those last miles of crap you have to prepare yourself for!!
This last week I particularly noticed my personal challenge of getting enough to eat for the workouts I am doing. If I am not fueled properly --the next day I feel like I got hit by a truck. So, my goal for this week is to remember to carry extra nuts, bananas, yogurt, and Nutri Grain bars with me wherever I go. I get busy, and won't have anything to eat, and then it is too late. So -- no more excuses!
My arm is feeling good, so I'll be back to the old chinup bar tomorrow! But, I am going to replace weights this week with yoga. My hips are getting tight again -- and it will be a good break from weights for me.
