Today I had to drive up to the cities for another training session. I made the most of my trip. A quick stop by Caribou coffee for my caramel skim latte to keep me company on the drive up.
Add a fiber one bar = instant, yummy breakfast.
Thankfully, I had a good lunch break so I was able to meet up with my Mom and Dad for lunch. We went to their new favorite place, Panda Express.
I love their honey walnut shrimp. Scott doesn’t like seafood, to I try not to get that when we go out together because we often share each others meals and I feel bad if he can’t have any of mine, but I eat his! But, with my parent’s, they like seafood and don’t do as much sharing!
I got honey walnut shrimp, orange chicken and noodles.
After lunch, I drove back to Mankato. I had the afternoon off of work, Abby thought that maybe it was time to play. . .
I watched the Celebrity Apprentice – WOW – this is going to be a crazy season.
Then, I headed out for my long run of the week. I was originally going to save it until tomorrow, because Scott and I took Friday off of work for his birthday! But, after the running sickness I had last week, I didn’t want to possibly ruin his day!
The run went pretty well, did 13 miles. My left sock was rubbing on the ball of my foot so I ended up with a huge blister! The weather was good, 30 degrees and just a slight wind.
I was tired when I was done. And after I showered up, the running sickness returned. I felt awful all night long!
Finally at about 9:30 pm (3 hours after the end of my run), I tried some ginger ale and soup.
Then, I went to bed, because I was super tired.
After these last two long runs and feeling awful afterwards. . . I can’t help but think maybe I am not in ‘marathon training shape.’ I am not sure if I have the miles under my belt to increase my mileage and do these long runs. I am just about 2 months away from the Green Bay Marathon, and I just don’t know if I have enough time. It is a really hard decision, but it’s something that I will have to strongly consider, maybe the Green Bay marathon isn’t for me this year.
Do you have any suggestions?
