Good morning! Guess what I want to talk about today? Running and marathon training! That's pretty much all that's going to be going here the next few weeks. Just deal.
I am really going to do this. I'm anxious, excited, scared, confident, unsure, stressed, relaxed, nervous, freaking hot mess ball of energy going into this race. That's a whole lot of human emotions ya'll.
Saturday, I had a 12 mile run on the schedule that was not meant to be. I needed more 20 mile run recovery time, my knees were hurting big time. I probably could have pushed myself there, but I am so scared of permanent injury sidelining this race I called time a 5k in. I headed to the gym post run and put in 20 minutes on the stair master and strength training. As long as I am healthy on race day, I know I will be fine. I'm going to proceed with the rmeainder of training as planned, and not stress about this weekend run that wasn't.
Saturday was an all around fabulous day! Mr. Noel spent lots of QT together, and that evening we headed to our good friends' house for a Saints playoff party! The Who Dat Nation went to bed happy, winning is fun! It's my favorite. I'm 0 for 2 on this New Years resolutions, I'm supposed to be taking more pictures, this is all I got:
