My race is getting SO close!!! One week from today I will be finishing my first 13.1!!! It's hard to believe that it is here and I'm ready!!!! I haven't been able to train as much as I would have liked this week. I had a very intense work week (all of my choirs attended festival for ratings), a healing knee (from a fall, silly me), and no thyroid medication in my system this week due to a prescription mix up (feeling completely exhausted). But I have to remember that it's not what I do two weeks before its what I've been doing for the last year that will get me done with 13.1!
Today starts my particular eating. I will be doing less running this week and some cross training. I'm tapering my running and will increase my carbs all week. Not a good weigh in week for sure!!!
I was supposed to hit the pavement for my last long run this morning but it's 40* and raining. I have places to be this afternoon so I will move this run to tomorrow. 65* and sunny in the forecast. Perfect.
My race is in the 10 day forecast on my phone!!! Yay. I remember when my wedding made it into my ten day forecast. I always base how close events are by the ten day forecast. How funny! (picture)
I have a brunch this morning with my fellow jewelry ladies. I'm excited about that! I was in the top ten this quarter in my group. I'm proud of that. So after brunch everything that hits my mouth will be made in my kitchen. I had a fun TGIF (end of workweek) meal last night with my hubby at Hooters (followed by a little shopping) and was so sick afterwards. My body is no longer accustom to grease, butter, and fat. Amazing how our bodies react to these things! Those of you that have followed me for a while know that boneless wings are my weakness! I'm learning to dislike them.
On to the shopping trip I mentioned. My sports bra finally hit it's last leg on my 13 mile training run. The metal in the back became exposed and cut my back (no good) and I've been having to wear two at once! I found one at Academy that I liked in Knoxville that is Under Armour brand.(but didn't get it!) Same brand I've used for years! Went to the UA outlet at the mall last night. They didn't have them :/
So I decided to try VS and see if they had the VSX line. They did not. The sales lady insisted that I try a Pink sports bra. Yeah right?!! I showed her exactly why they are not intended for high intensity activities such as running. The fabric has so much give in it. The closest VSX store is in Columbus Ohio. (disappointment). The VSX line carries a line of sports bras with function and support. I tried one on once and thought I loved it. Promptly heard a tornado siren and was rushed out of the store only to never find one again. Now that I've griped about sports bras.... Lol. I'll be headed out here at home today to hopefully find one that I love. Wondering why they sell sports bras that don't actually serve any purpose. :/
Anyhow. These are my thoughts the morning a week away from my race. Have a fantastic Saturday.
