Monday arrived and so did my massive bout with the flu...gah, you don't need all the sorted details of woofing my Wheaties, tossing my cookies, whatever way you want to describe it...blah...I was sick....but.....
here it is in a nutshell:
Positive : ) We did it!!!!
I think our average pace was about 8:28 (well, that may have been mine, Shirley, Rick and Jen were soldiering on at a faster pace than me. They will absolutely Rock the Marathon!!!
Negative : ( Cold, wind, no really windy, and some frozen snow
The run itself was not too bad, considering....then we turned to finish the last 5K and I ran into my nemesis...the wind...I really started to lag behind, I was huffing and puffing like an old freight train, my mind was fried. Rick the dear that he is dropped back to run with me....thanks Rick!!!
Positive : ) We did it!!!
We still have a lot of miles in front of us before the actual marathon including another 32K, but with that one down, the next one may be a little easier!!
Tonight is our clinic night and a 7K tempo. I'm still not feeling great from the flu, but I feel amazingly great from the run....go figure....
That's it in a nutshell!!!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
