Wow, so I am back. I've been really bad about blogging lately but that only means that I am doing lots of cool things in real life, right? Ok, not really but sometimes life happens and I am too busy to blog about it.
So first off, LA Marathon is coming up fast and furious. Cannot believe the day is almost here. I feel really good this time around and think that a sub-4 is in my future, BQ however is another story. I don't think that I trained hard enough this time around so I will save that for SD Rock and Roll or Chicago. I am just planinng to go out there and enjoy the day. I have trained hard and feel confident in what I can do. I am really excited to run. I will be doing my final long run of 8 miles tomorrow. I will be tackling that beast fast and furious style. Not because I am a track star but because I have to make sure I get back in time to clean all my crap off the floor before the carpet cleaners come. I plan to start at 6:30 and be back by 7:30am...hahaha, that would be nice!
So my other plan of attack for this marathon was that I was going to try to lose a couple of pounds by race day and I think I've been doing a good job if I do say so myself. I think it's been a month but I've dropped some weight which I am hoping will help take some pressure off my legs. So I am going to continue to eat right for this coming week and then do a carbo load on Saturday. Nothing crazy just a bit more food than I've been eating.
I went snowboarding for the second time in my life this past Wednesday and am pretty sore today still but that may be because I did a speedy 6 miles yesterday. I really want to get better at that sport so I might be going up there again once more this season but I am going to make it a goal to go a couple of times next season. Also, while I was up there this week, I realized that the thin air up there really helps me with my breathing once I get back down here. So, maybe this summer, I am going to go up there for the weekend and do some running to strengthen my lungs. Oh good times! :s
So, that's it for now. I really should not do these occasional long blogs. My brain just spills everything out in an unorderly manner. Terrible blogger I am.
