Last long run!

So tomorrow morning is my last big long run!  I'm scheduled for doing another 20 miler, but I'm going to make it 22--I know it won't make much difference, but I want to know, mentally, that I can only have to add 4 miles more to finish the marathon.  6.2 more sounds like a lot--10ks are hard--but 4.2 sounds like something I can do.

I was supposed to do this run this morning, but have had some personal crap going on and spent most of Thursday and Friday being a waste of space and not eating.  I have so much trouble making myself eat food if I'm upset.  Friday I only had 1 sandwich all day, which I nursed for 4 hours before finally finishing it.  When I woke up this morning at 645 to get ready to run, I just felt awful like my body had been punched all over, and my eyes hurt and I had a headache.  So I decided to wait until tomorrow and to try to make myself eat more today.  I still did kind of a halfass job though... I skipped breakfast, and had indian buffet food and some fruit around 3:00, and some juice and rice chips this evening ... not really a good dinner.  I just don't feel like eating.  Blargh.  Hopefully all of the indian that I ate will be enough to get me by.

One of my running buddies, Lisa, is meeting me (unexpectedly! yay!) at 7:15 and we'll do 11 together, then I'm meeting Sam to do the last 11.  So I'll have buddies on this run.  I'm not as scared of it as I was of the last 20, but for some reason 20 was just a big distance hurdle for me.  We'll see how tomorrow goes!

Hard to believe that I've made it this far and training is almost over... just the taper left after this...

  1. I hope your 22 miler today goes well! I don't know what your schedule looks like this week, but we should get together soon. I'm hoping to make it to Turtle Thursdays this week too!
