Not really a lot on my mind this morning, so we'll just start with the workout and go from there. Workout wasn't anything major. I biked to work, got chased by two poodles who scared the crap out of me. So much so I had to get my bike up to 80 mph to get the hell away from them. ;) Totally red-lined it. Couple that with the adrenaline, and my bike to work was pretty hard LOL. Legs were shot. Those little yippy fuckers. :) Nobody really expects the little demons from hell to be barking at you at 4:30 am. HA HA HA. Little Fuckers. :)
I ran home too, and my legs were tired. I don't know the pace, around 9:20. I then napped and read, the book I got from the library. Mostly napped. Today will be a rest day until our run too. 6 miles tonight, and a good 4 day stretch to get these old legs used to running some miles, with some of them of the tired variety.
Let me talk of my year here, because I have a history. I do not put a ton of pressure on my Illinois Marathon, because if it is a race that ends up being not so good, then it still is good training for the fall marathon. Also it is good training for the Riverbank 25K. That is my favorite race, and a race I P.R. a lot. Sometimes even when just doing the route in training. I'd love to get another P.R. in that. Also to get that sub:22:00 5K. So a lot on my mind this year. I wonder if people look back at their past years if they feel they have been motivated more some years than others? Do people feel they were mentally "on" some years more than others? I would imagine so. I don't think we are the same day in day out. That is probably one of the things that drive us all crazy a bit. We want to be consistent in how we feel internally. I mean we can be consistent in training I guess, by doing things the same week in week out, but don't we all want to feel great inside too. That is what we all would like I bet huh?? To always feel good about who we are, and what we are, etc... and always feel happy, and stuff. Ehhh, just thinking out loud. :)
Anyway I did want to leave a link for any couch potatoes out there who would like to get their butt out and about, and lose some weight, and take on a challenge. Jen Harrison has decided to team up with Beth Shutt again to get your lazy butt's off your ass. They might not word it like that though. :) LOL

p.s. I was just thinking of how my year is shaping up to be a pretty good one, and you are going through an injury. When things are going good for me, it sometimes makes it hard to think of others, but I know it sucks. :( xoxoxoxoxo
