Weekly Roundup 1.4-1.10

Week 15 of 16

One more week.  ONE MORE WEEK!  Can you believe it?  These last 15 weeks FLEW by!

Am I excited?  Yes.  Am I nervous? Absolutely.  Getting injured after my 20-miler really threw me for a loop.  I don’t know what’s going to happen on race day but I do know that I AM going to run.  There has been so many people supporting me on this journey and I can’t let them down.  The good news is while last week I was in denial, this week I was determined to do everything in my power to get to the start line pain-free.  I got in the pool.  I used RockTape.  I foam rolled.  I added (a little) strength exercises.  I took a lot of ibuprofen.  I didn’t spin.  I didn’t run with Georgie.  Joe has been a big resource this week and I am happy to report that I had 2 pain-free runs this week.  I could still FEEL something wasn’t right but I will take it.

With one more week to go, the confidence is building—with caution.  I can’t wait to get down to Houston and see my family.  Everything will be ok.

G mileage disclaimer: None of the mileage reported with Georgie is straight, consistent running. We may run 1 mile in 9 or 10 minutes but in reality we probably covered a 2-3 mile distance with a mix of walking and running.  I stop my watch every time we start walking.

January Totals: 13 miles
