One Week to M Day...

Well, was up too early for going to bed too late (worked last night till 11:30) but it was a good day. Went to the state track meet and it was quite fun, although very cold, felt for the runners as none of them run the distances that we as marathoners would appreciate the cooler temps for. We missed the girls 3200 relay, but we saw up through the girls 400 dash, including even with the wind, a girl almost break her own state record in the 1600 in 4:46.17, .17 over what her record was...she so outclassed the others, I think she will be a name to be remembered in the future for mid-distance running.

Went to lunch and then my last longest run before the marathon, 8 miles at an easy pace (although accidently snuch in a few at 8:30, but feel good). I had my massage at 5 and man did I need it. She really just worked my legs and back and then a little on my abs to make everything loose. I could defintiely feel that the right glut was much tighter than the left as well as the low back and she was pretty sure the hamstrings were as well...I'm feeling so relaxed now. She also recommended that I should watch Chariots of Fire before the marathon, which I haven't seen, so I rented it and will watch it one of the nights this week...thought about it tonight but ended up watching Old School instead and now I'm feeling sleepy and even though it's only 9 pm on a Saturday night, I might crawl into bed and read for a while and sleep really, really good tonight...

Been spending tonight converting CDs to MP3 format too so I can get a song list together for the marathon, will definitely need music....oh, that was my other plan for the night, to get some packing done for next week...will have plenty of time this week though with the limited running I'm doing, but lots and lots of stretching!! And counting the days to the weekend AFTER the marathon where I will PAR-TAY like a rock star. I don't work on Friday night and only work 5-10 on Saturday!! Woo-hoo....

DG, movie is boring I thought. Now I just rented Underworld 2 and that was much more motivating!

OK, seems a bit strange for inspirational!! I saw Underworld...ah, but wait, Kate Beckensale right?? :) You're right though, so far I am finding it a bit boring...need to find something else I think!!
