Olivia's Marathon Misadventures

[cough] [hack] Poof - Yellow Cloud

There is so much pollen in the air right now I can barely move. Ew. All those pollen molecules were sucked in and lodged in my lungs last night as I ran 3 measly miles. Um, three full days in Las Vegas with one full day of travel and one recovery day makes for a pathetic work out schedule. So last night was the first night I worked out since, oh, a week ago.

Yes, it is true. I've not run since I week ago last night. TERR-ible. And the 3m around Centennial Park were super struggle last night. I thought I was going to die. The good news is: RR is back and in running form after her small stress fracture in the foot. YAY!! But last night, we were both so winded we could barely talk. Sadly, her doctor told her not to run the marathon, but she might be able to squeak in the half. I am thinking the same thing since my knees keep giving me real problems. I don't know. Can't decide. The yellow powder (napalm?) is keeping me from thinking clearly.

AND - it is so HOT here now. I love the warm weather, but not to run in. When we start training again in June for the fall marathon we will HAVE to run in the a.m., otherwise, the heat will be too much.

This a.m. I could hardly get out of bed - I was all achy and had a sore throat. Don't worry, that's my allergies. Made it to training anyway!! I totally forgot today is Thursday. It is our last weight training session before the marathon. [horror!] April 29 is coming up fast!



  • Yeah! One more week til Country Music!! Maybe it will be nice and cool like it is today!
